Book: Mojave Pottery, Mojave People
Paperback - Great condition
By Jill Leslie Furst
This comprehensive volume brings to light the wondrously inventive clay people, mythological creatures, and effigy vessels of the Mojave people, recording this Southwest Indian ceramic art in more than 50 full-color plates, 25 color and black-and-white illustrations, and a complete catalog of the Dillingham Collection of Mojave Ceramics, one of the largest and most complete Mojave assemblages in the world. The stories of the Mojaves - along with descriptions of family life, gender roles, subsistence activities, clothing and personal adornment, shamanism, and the afterlife - form the context for Furst's exploration of the Mojave ceramic tradition.
