Among the sketches and lithographs are scenes depicting the Eagle Dance of Tesque Pueblo, the Corn Dance, and Dance of the Shalakos, Healing Ceremony of the Navajo. "The mariage of fine artwork and poeticaly rendered text to portray specific incidents and scenes is often a challenging task. Here, Ira Moskowitz and John Collier have more than met this challenge."

Book description
1993 Barnes & Noble huge (coffee-table size) hardcover & DJ, first thus, first printing. Originally published in 1949 under the title "Patterns & Ceremonials of the Indians of the Southwest." The B&W lithographs, sketches and drawings by Ira Moskowitz are spectacular. Tribes covered: Navajo, Hopi, Apaches, and Pueblo Indians. The marriage of fine artwork and poetically rendered text to portray specific incidents and scenes is often a challenging task. In this book, Ira Moskowitz and John Collier have more than met this challenge. In his medium Moskowitz has displayed a rare sensitivity to both line and form. He provides a rich aesthetic sense in every lithograph, sketch, and drawing.
