MAORI ROCK ART
Until recently, Maori rock art was largely the concern of museum staff and archaeologists. Michael Dunn emphasizes rock art as a valid art form and describes its history of discovery and the debate over the origins of the drawings and carvings found on natural rock surfaces in New Zealand. Twenty-six illustrations, eight in colour, each with a full descriptive caption make up the main part of the book.
Michael Dunn, lecturer in Art History at the University of Auckland, has written both for the student and general reader.
9 ¾ × 7 ¼ in, 32 pages, 8 colour plates, 18 black and white illustrations, casebound. $1.95
