Pacific Arts of Polynesia and Micronesia, The

Embraces the whole spectrum of Polynesian and Micronesian art forms - from tattooing to musical instruments
Includes a focus on the contemporary as well as the traditional arts of the region
Looks at the arts of Polynesia and Micronesia side-by-side rather than separately, illuminating the artistic types, styles, and concepts that they share

The Pacific Ocean covers one-third of the earth`s surface. Comprising thousands of islands and hundreds of cultural groups, Polynesia and Micronesia cover a large part of this vast ocean, from the dramatic mountains of Hawaii to the small, flat coral islands of Kiribati. Including both traditional and contemporary arts, this book introduces the rich artistic traditions of these two regions, traditions that have had a considerable impact on western art in the twentieth century through the influence of artists such as Gauguin.

Instead of looking at Polynesia and Micronesia separately, the book focuses on the artistic types, styles, and concepts that they share, placing each in its wider cultural context. From the textiles of Tonga to the canoes of Tahiti, Adrienne Kaeppler looks at religious and sacred rituals and objects, carving, architecture, tattooing, personal ornaments, basket-making, clothing, textiles, fashion, the oral arts, dance, music and musical instruments - even canoe-construction - to provide the ultimate introduction to the rich and vibrant artistic cultures of the Polynesian and Micronesian islands.
