Description
In aesthetic quality, significance, and scope, the Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection of art from the Pacific is one of the finest in the world. This book spotlights 198 outstanding works in color photos and detailed descriptions, from a New Guinea bis—a stunning 18-foot ancestor totem, carved and painted in the 20th century—to a 200-year-old dance paddle from Rapa Nui in a powerful abstract style. The book explores the five major cultural regions of the Pacific—Australia, Melanesia, Micronesia, Polynesia, and the islands of Southeast Asia—and such notable works as a monumental Baining barkcloth figure, a spectacular shield from the Solomon Islands, a weather charm from the Caroline Islands, and textiles from Sumatra.
