About this product
- DescriptionIllustrated by more than 400 beautifully photographed masterpieces from one of the world's largest private collections and published in a large and sumptuous folio, Indonesian Tribal Sculpture promises to be one of the most important books ever published on the subject. The artwork, which was collected by Rodger Dashow of Boston over a period of 30 years, t only includes many unpublished pieces but also types that have been rarely seen. The book also features groundbreaking texts including an introduction by Andrew Gurevich and Robert Walter, the president and chairperson of the Joseph Campbell Foundation, concerning the continuing relevance of the work of that seminal philosopher and bestselling author in the field of tribal studies. Bruce W. Carpenter, author and co-author of more than twenty titles on Indonesian art, history and culture, provides the main text. Written for the interested layman the book provides a clear overview of the subject and also discusses the significance of the recent scientific discovery that Indonesia is home to some of the oldest art on earth. Every art piece illustrated in the book is accompanied by descriptive captions and measurements.
