The Haida, inhabitants for centuries of the Queen Charlotte Islands off the Northwest Coast of N. America, had no word for art; but virtually every object they created was elegantly decorated. Ninety color photos of artworks (masks, pipes, rattles, and other ceremonial objects) and 95 b&w photos represent the renowned collection of the Canadian Museum of Civilization. MacDonald, president of the Museum, supplies the extensive text, discussing Haida art in a historical, cultural, and cosmological context. -Amazon.
