Product Information:

Read this book and get a rare look into the traditional ways of creating the beautiful masks that have brought such admiration to the Native American carvers of the Pacific Northwest.The masks of the Kwakiutl people are noted around the world for their bold, colorful designs. Used for dramatic recreations of the ancestors' adventures, they carry a depth of social, historical, and religious meaning. The author has spent a lifetime creating these masks, a privilege bestowed upon him by the Kwakiutl people. The Kwakiutl carvers are known particularly for their transformation or opening masks, which change or open to reveal a second, inner mask. The mask carved in this new book is just such a mask, beautiful in its design and its complexity. This is a unique and much awaited book by one of America's foremost artists.
