Description

The images in the pages of this book -- animal, human and spirit faces -- evoke the powerful cultural legacy of the inhabitants of the Northwest Coast. Spirits of the Water presents 110 examples of the art produced by the Native peoples of a region of great linguistic, cultural and geographical diversity. Six essays by leading experts Paz Cabello, Ieoncio Carretero Collado, Alberto Costa Romero de Tejada and Bill Holm establish a historical and cultural context for this remarkable assemblage of objects, and explore the traditions of art, social organization and ceremony that inspired their makers.
