Explore the art of the Haida, from Haida Gwaii. Local BC history. Hardcover 1996, has name of original owner on first page. Used but in good condition for general use.
The Haida, inhabitants for centuries of the Queen Charlotte Islands off the Northwest Coast of N. America, had no word for art; but virtually every object they created was elegantly decorated. Ninety color photos of artworks (masks, pipes, rattles, and other ceremonial objects) and 95 b&w photos represent the renowned collection of the Canadian Museum of Civilization. MacDonald, president of the Museum, supplies the extensive text, discussing Haida art in a historical, cultural, and cosmological context.
