Book Description

Prevailing 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.
