Description
The Metropolitan Museum of Art's collections of art objects from the Pacific Islands and from precolonial Africa and the Americas are represented here in 118 striking examples. They are presented in detailed descriptions illustrated with large color plates, from an elegant matched pair of storage jars from Peru, both with a "bird's head" knob and more than 2,000 years old, to a star-like double eagle pendant in gleaming gold from Costa Rica or Panama—the very sort of object that inspired Europe to plunder the New World.
