Arctic Spirit: Inuit Art from the Albrecht Collection at the Heard Museum (Hardcover)
Covering prehistoric to contemporary works of cultures from Siberia to the Bering Strait, Arctic Spirit is based on one of the world's most important collections of Inuit art. Organized by major themes -- the land, the animals, the supernatural -- the book showcases sculptures, prints and drawings, and textiles. Highlighting Canadian Inuit works but also including such rarities as ancient Alaskan ivories as well as contemporary Greenlandic tupilaks, Arctic Spirit features extensive commentaries, historical background, and artist interviews in a multifaceted homage to some unique cultures and their art.
