Publisher Comments:

To the Westerner what culture seems more mysterious or exotic than Tahiti or Fiji? Yet, most of us know little about the arts and cultures of these islands. Mingling a deep appreciation for the beauty and variety of arts--sculpture, paintings, textiles, dance, jewelry, and architecture--found in these faraway islands with detailed knowledge of their traditions and meaning, Anne D'Alleva opens to us a beautiful world vibrantly alive.

Book News Annotation:

Explores the myriad art traditions and practices of Island Melanesia, Polynesia, Micronesia, and New Guinea from within their own cultural context, and shows many examples of sculpture, painting, textiles, dance, jewelry, and architecture in color photos. Includes a timeline and glossary.
