About this title:

Synopsis: Book by Wardwell, Allen

From Publishers Weekly: Two hundred years before Christ, the earliest known Eskimos of the Bering Strait were producing ritualistic and practical objects of great beauty and naturalism. The carved ivories of these little-known maritime cultures are the subject of an extraordinary exhibition touring nationwide. Inhabiting Siberia, Alaska and the islands in between, the ancient Eskimos practiced shamanism and magic. This catalogue includes reproductions of pointed oval heads whose brooding expressions suggest contact with the spirit world; powerful human torsos engraved with swirling curves; realistically carved whales, loons and polar bears; and harpoons, snow goggles and gut-scrapers made with rare grace and economy. Whatever the mysterious faces are trying to tell us, their timeless, impersonal quality reminds one of Easter Island statues or Cycladic art. Wardwell, a primitive art scholar, serves as a museum consultant. (October
