Exploring the similarities between these lost cultures, Primal Arts II illuminates their lives, revealing how these people worked with nature and created and used various objects that, today, are considered great works of art. Linking previously unpublished archives with the most significant works from collections around the world, Primal Arts II is the ultimate resource book, providing a comprehensive look at the history and art of lost cultures. Featuring seventeenth-century European engravings, artwork by George Catlin, photographs by Curtis, the Karel Kupka collection of Aboriginal paintings, detailed accounts of Claude Levi-Strauss's expeditions in Amazonia and Paul-Emile Victor's journeys in the Arctic, and the author's original research, this book is the must-have volume for anyone interested in primal arts, archeology, and cultural history.
