Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 906153111X, Paperback)

Illustrated with large, crisp photographs that almost let you feel the texture of the museum pieces they depict, this catalog of the Paul and Dora Janssen-Arts Collection presents some of the finest masterworks in existence of pre-Columbian art in the Americas. From superbly fashioned Colombian gold pieces that look curiously like modern sculpture to a caricature of a howling dog-carved by a Mayan artist some 2,000 years ago-that perfectly evokes an action that any dog lover today would recognize, the book reveals a wealth of powerful and profound creative expression.
