This volume of photographs and commentary brings together one of the most outstanding groups of treasures of Pre-Columbian art assembled by a private collector. It is a witness to the richness of Pre-Columbian art, from Alaska to the Terra del Fuego, on a time span that goes from the origins to the Conquista. Pre-Columbian artists were masters in stone and ceramics, manufactured textiles and used feathers for garments, and were especially gifted in goldwork. Highly recommended. New.
