Native American art by David W Penney( Book )

25 editions published between 1994 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,089 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Native American arts and crafts are enjoying renewed appreciation and increasing recognition as a vital part of America's cultural heritage. This volume, a magnificent collection of full-color photographs and incisive commentary, presents the richness and celebrates the diversity of this centuries-old tradition and places it within a larger historical and social context. The artistic tradition explored in this book emerged as the snows of the last Ice Age melted, nearly 20,000 years ago. Native American Art displays the astonishing array of both utilitarian and ceremonial objects produced by America's earliest peoples. Native American Art features works from every part of the United States, executed in many different media. Lively descriptions identify elements that characterize the works of each historic period, geographic region, and culture, as well as reveal ideas about art, imagery, and spiritualism embodied in these works

African masterworks in the Detroit Institute of Arts by Detroit Institute of Arts( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

African Masterworks in the Detroit Institute of Arts showcases eighty-eight of the museum's finest works, representing the full range of major sub-Saharan sculptural traditions during the past three centuries: figures, masks, containers, carved stools, jewelry, and musical instruments. As noted in the introductory material, almost all African art has a functional base - each sculpture's primary justification is its effectiveness as a ritual or utilitarian object. Text accompanying each photograph describes not only the circumstances, when known, of the object's creation, but also the harmonious interplay of its aesthetic features and cultural and spiritual function. The catalogue also details the rituals surrounding the religious objects and the social importance of the secular works. Organized by region, from the western Sudan to southern Africa, the book includes essays on the history of each area, as well as maps and an extensive bibliography. Michael Kan, the curator of the collection, provides a history of the museum's African art acquisitions since 1900, and the introduction by Roy Sieber traces the evolution of Western appreciation for African art, describing also the value placed on the objects by the community from which they arose
