Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The distinctive artistic styles of the people of New Ireland, an island in the Bismarck Archipelago of Melanesia in the South Pacific, are characterized by an appreciation for fine carving, a taste for vivid colors, and imaginative combinations of human and animal forms. This volume provides an elaborate visual repertoire of their art and explores the relationship between the art of New Ireland and the religion and rituals of its society.
