This is a comprehensive illustrated overview of the art of the Pacific Islands. These islands cover of course a vast area and the population has formed very diverse societies with very different traditions and cultural expressions. Many examples of islanders' sculpture, painting, textile usage and design, dance, jewellery and architecture are illustrated and discussed. These include examples of early Europeans' presentation of island society and modern art trends as well as contemporary artefacts where tradition and modernity mingle. With timeline, bibliography, colour and black-and-white illustrations of artefacts drawn from worldwide museums and collections, and index.
