Oceanic art, both traditional and modern, compries a wide and fascinating diversity of styles and forms, reflecting an equally wide and fascinating diversity of cultures spanning the Pacific Ocean. The 26 articles in this wonderful text were presented by ethnologists, art historians, archaeologists, and anthropologists at a 1974 international symposium concerned with the state of art in Oceania, scholarship on the subject, and the future direction of both. This book is in almost new condition, but there is light edge wear on the DJ.
