Beautiful presentation of Native American art and craft. The book is lavishly illustrated. Norman Feder is curator of American Indian Art in the Denver Art Museum and in this book describes and illustrates the various art forms of Native American tribes and nations of the Great Plains, the American Southwest, California, the Pacific Plateau, the Arctic, etc. The dynamic art and fine craftsmanship of the North American Indian are often considered expressions of an interesting but vanishing primitive culture. Yet the high degree of sophistication of much of this art, the endless variations of motifs, and the sheer aesthetic beauty of many of these works warrant continual reconsideration. This volume is a study of the whole range of artistic expression of these vital peoples the pottery and silver-work of the Pueblos of the Southwest, the wooden masks of the Eskimo and the Tlingit, the bead-work of the Plains and Pacific Plateau tribes, and the basketry of the California natives. The paperback cover is white with a Northwest Indian Mask. Provides excellent explanations of the origins of Indian Art published in this book.
