Why the elegant Mimbres black-on-white pottery designs have largely escaped the attention of the art world and the general public is as puzzling as the life and disappearance of the Mimbres people themselves. In their primitive world-living a nearly Stone Age existence within southwest New Mexico and southeast Arizona in the tenth century A.D.-these mysterious people made their delicate and refined pottery with enchanting hand-painted, black-on-white designs that go unrivalled in all the 8,000 years of pottery making. With a succinct, accurate explanatory text, precise renderings of Mimbres designs, and thoughtful interpretations for each work of art, "Art of a Vanished Race" offers a veritable art history of the remarkable Mimbres people.
