Oceania (N° 19639)
Through works of art from a region that covers a third of the world's surface, from the Polynesian atolls to the tropical rainforests of the mountains of New Guinea, this book highlights the splendors of Oceania. Imposing statues, fascinating fabrics, remarkable ritual objects and intricate ornaments tell the story of the many journeys that have shaped the long history and many cultures of Oceania, from the island navigators who crossed the ocean thousands of years ago to the migrations of today, to colonial encounters.
This book combines the most recent scientific studies and debates, major historical works of art and the contemporary perspectives of island authors and artists. It reveals Oceania as it has been perceived, from within and without, from Captain Cook's travels to the challenges of globalization and climate change.
