About this title


Shows examples of pipes, effigies, war clubs, bowls, spoons, and whistles, discusses themes and carving techniques, and looks at the place of these objects in the Indians' culture

From Library Journal:

Plains Indian art expert Ewers visited 150 museums and private collections during 20 years of research to document this "long-neglected three-dimensional art." In this comprehensive book, Ewers identifies by tribe, and sometimes by individual, previously unknown or mislabeled pieces. He groups pieces by types and uses, shows the sculptor's attitude toward his subject, and summarizes historical periods of sculptural activity. This is the definitive work on Plains Indian sculpture. The highly readable text is complemented by the well-placed photos. Recommended for public and academic libraries. Susan Hamburger, Florida State Univ. Lib., Tallahassee
