Oceania

£24.99

Product description

Encompassing thousands of islands from the remote shores of Rapa Nui to the dense rainforest of Papua New Guinea, Oceania is one of the world's most extraordinary and diverse regions. This book, accompanying the spectacular exhibition at the Royal Academy, showcases Oceanic art - imposing statues, dazzling fabrics, remarkable ritual objects and intricate ornaments tell the story of the subsequent migrations of people, cultures and objects from the Pacific around the world, from the unrivalled navigational feats of the first settlers who traversed the open ocean in wooden canoes to the explorations of Captain Cook 250 years ago.
Bringing together the most up-to-date scholarship by experts in the field, this book presents Oceania through the eyes of its own people - artists, poets and photographers - who explore the legacy of the past and the future of a world and way of life threatened by globalisation and climate change. Featuring over 300 colour illustrations, and text from editors Peter Brunt, Senior Lecturer at Victoria University of Wellington and Nicholas Thomas, Director of the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, University of Cambridge.

Large paperback in excellent condition with very minor signs of wear, no marks and good binding. This is a large book and may require an extra posting cost.
