Book Description University of Pennsylvania Press, 1991. Paperback. Book Condition: New. All native peoples of South America utilize the avian resources of their environments, not only for food but also for the colorful feathers that play a vital role in the creation of festive garments for their rituals. Each object reflects more than just technology or aesthetic taste, it makes a statement about the physical, social, and cultural world of each society. To be able to appreciate these creations as more than mere objects of beauty, it is necessary to explore the culture of the people who made and use them. This book was published to accompany with the exhibit of the same name at the University Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, University of Pennsylvania, 1991-1994. Illustrated with 171 color photos. Bookseller Inventory # 12060
