Unknown Amazon by Colin McEwan
Book DescriptionPrevailing preconceptions have tended to ignore the achievements of Amazonian societies that developed prior to European contact with the Americas. What emerges in this book is a picture of sophisticated artistic traditions executed in pottery, stone, wood and featherwork. These works of art bear a range of complex imagery, creating a window into a world that has undergone profound transformations, yet still offers insights and lessons to be learned.
