The sculptures range from the delicate and affectionate ivory carvings of the Eskimo hunters of the Arctic to the dignified King figures of the Bakuba people of Central Africa. The wealth and variety of these works of art, only recently appreciated by Europeans, is one of the great cultural inheritances of mankind. This lively and authoritative work examines the thinking behind the creation of such sculptures, describes the virtuoso skills and imaginative powers of their creators and shows how different materials and techniques influence the sculptural forms produced.
