Productbeschrijving

Het nieuwe boek van Tattoo anthropologist Lars Krutak, medewerker van het gerenommeerde Smithsonian instituut en bekend van zijn onderzoeken naar tatoeages bij stammen over de hele wereld, handelt over de tatoeage tradities van de oorspronkelijke bewoners van Noord Amerika. Met veel nooit eerder gepubliceerde illustraties. www.larskrutak.com
For thousands of years astonishingly rich and diverse forms of tattooing have been produced by the Indigenous peoples of North America. Long neglected by anthropologists and art historians, tattooing was a time-honoured traditional practice that expressed the patterns of tribal social organization and religion, while also channelling worlds inhabited by deities, spirits, and the ancestors.

Tattoo Traditions of Native North America explores the many facets of indelible Indigenous body marking across every cultural region of North America. As the first book on the subject, it breaks new ground on one of the least-known mediums of Amerindian expressive culture that nearly disappeared from view in the twentieth century, until it was reborn in recent decades.
