Summary "... introduces us to major artistic pieces from Africa, Oceania, South America, and Asia. Exploring the myths behind each of these magnificent works of art, the films in this collection offer insight into the creation of the pieces, their uses, their history, and their traditional and contemporary significance. In doing so, a clear vision of the beliefs, customs, and culture of the peoples behind the works emerges"--Container.
