"This first documentation of the Storyteller phenomenon contains a wealth of information for scholars, collectors, and general readers. Barbara Babcock's text links the invention of the Storyteller to Pueblo figurative tradition, traces the revival of figurative ceramics, makes stylistic comparisons, and discusses the artistic contributions of individual artists and Pueblos. The book is impressively illustrated and features a large section of color plates by award-winning photographer GuyMonthan. Photographs of Storytellers are enhanced by descriptive captions and quotations from the artists compiled by Doris Monthan, who has also provided biographical charts of the artists. Her listing of 233 potters who make Storytellers and related figures--in addition to 146 family members who are also potters--constitutes one of the most extensive documentations of Southwest Indian potters available in a single volume."--From front cover flap

Katsina : commodified and appropriated images of Hopi supernaturals by Zena Pearlstone( Book )

4 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume chronicles the commodification of the Hopi Katsinam (plural of Katsina or Kachina) over the last 150 years. Once known only to the Pueblo peoples of the Southwest, these carvings have been transformed into international symbols and are now found decorating designer scarves, T-shirts, coasters, and a host of other products. In the course of this heavily illustrated study, the authors confront the consequences of inter- and intracultural perception, definitions of sacred and secular, colonialist thought and postcolonial retort. Also included are short statements by thirteen contemporary artists actively carving Katsinam or representing them in their work."--Amazon.com
