Tribal sculpture : masterpieces from Africa, South East Asia, and the Pacific in the Barbier Mueller Museum by Collection Barbier-Müller( Book )

12 editions published in 1995 in English and German and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The quality and variety of the Barbier-Mueller collection of ethnic sculpture are astonishing, and only the finest pieces were selected for this all-color, oversize book. These striking pieces came from a vast number of small local cultures, of almost infinite variety, from an enormous expanse of the Old World, more specifically from Africa, Indonesia, especially the tribal areas - today known as Irian Jaya and New Guinea. Due to their ritual use, the rigors of tropical climates and the depradations of missionaries and conquerors, fine pieces have always been a rarity, as they were generally linked to the universal requirements of statehood and religion. Some remarkable pieces, however, did make up part of daily life
Oceanic art by Adrienne L Kaeppler( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The first major survey of Oceanic arts to be published in more than thirty years, this comprehensive volume brings together a vast number of important discoveries and the results of several in-depth studies of the subject, both past and present. Building on contemporary research and the most recent theoretical work, it also provides an introduction for the general reader through a series of remarkable texts and 900 illustrations, many never before published. A documentary section about the principal cultural groups of the region provides an essential reference. An excellent map adds further value." --Book Jacket
