Aboriginal Art A&i (Art & Ideas)by Howard Morphy
Synopses & Reviews
For thousands of years Australian Aborigines have been making art. A manifestation of the creative forces of the Dreamtime, art is also a means of expressing individual and group identity. Howard Morphy surveys the great variety in Aboriginal art, showing the interrelationships between such diverse art forms as body painting, dance, the decoration of weapons and utensils, and painting on bark and canvas.
Uses a contextual approach to show the interrelationships between such diverse art forms as body painting, dance, the decoration of weapons and utensils, and paintings on bark, board and canvas. Illustrated with many examples, Morphy shows why Aboriginal art has a growing international audience.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 434-439) and index.
