202 pp., illustrations, bibliography, index. The art of painting on bark is found in many parts of the Pacific, including Papua New Guinea, the home of the Kwoma people who are the subject of this study. Following European contact at the end of the nineteenth century and the rapid social change this entailed many New Guinea peoples gave up producing their distinctive designs on bark, but in some of the more remote parts of the island the art form still flourishes. This book documents the bark paintings of the Kwoma of the Sepik River region. it is the first full-length ethnographic analysis of this art form for any New Guinea society. 0.0.
