Morphy: Aboriginal Art. Paperback

!
  • Aboriginal Art
  • Howard Morphy
  • 448 pages, 200 colour & 50 b&w illustrations, map, further reading lists, glossary, index, 220 x 160 mm
  • Aboriginal art has survived the colonial period to become a major feature of contemporary Australian society. This book surveys the great variety in Aboriginal art, from ancient rock paintings to powerful modern works in acrylic on canvas. The patterns and symbols of Aboriginal art, though they may at first appear abstract, are laden with meaning. Morphy explains the social contexts in which art is made and its religious significance. The book uses a contextual approach to show the interrelationships between such diverse art forms as body painting, dance, the decoration of weapons and utensils, and painting on bark, board and canvas. The text is illustrated with outstanding examples, many published here for the first time.
