From the blurb:
The arts of the Maori are among the most alluring and sophisticated of the Pacific peoples. They developed their skills through centuries of endeavour and craft experimentation, expressing religious and artistic ideas in wood, stone, bone, shell and other materials. In particular, their carving and weaving are universally admired, and Maori themselves proudly preserve their artistic traditions and honour their great historic artworks.
In this introduction to the subject, Terence Barrow explains in simple language the significance of the design motifs used by the Maori in their works of art, and discusses the materials used, their construction and everyday uses. Highly illustrated, this book will answer the questions most commonly asked about Maori art and will give the reader a deeper understanding of the symbolic and spiritual significance of the works.
Terence Barrow is a highly regarded anthropologist who has studied Maori art and culture over many years. He now lives in Hawaii.
