Enduring Visions by Abby Remer

Book Description

Everywhere around the world, women have captured their unique vision and experiences in art. Whether done collectively or singly, long ago or right now in our own age, they have translated their religious, social, spiritual, and political selves into outward expression and beautiful form. Embark on a special adventure through the paintings, sculpture, jewellery, needlework, and cinema made by female artisans in countries ranging from Africa to Poland, Japan to Chile. Many of these incredible items, displayed in colour photographs, bridge the gap between the decorative and the functional: women's ornamentation on such items as tools, clothing, or the walls of their village homes transform the ordinary into something of profound beauty and meaning. Admire here the pottery from Nigeria; beadwork and murals from the Ndebele women; body decorations painted on the Yemeni bride; Japanese Ikebana; fashion design from the Caribbean; pysanky, painted eggs from the Ukraine; Soviet revolutionary films from the 1920s; Mayan textile traditions; and the other achievements by women across the globe.
