Here is the first comprehensive study of the Hawaiian sculptural tradition. Hawaiian Sculpture documents most known extant indigenous carvings of the human figure and identifies their locations public and private collections. More than 164 illustrations illuminate the wooden sculpture of artists whose names are unknown but who were brilliant by any standard.
The revised edition adds recently discovered pieces and a new introduction. The first edition discussed 147 pieces. The revised edition of Hawaiian Sculpture presents 17 heretofore uncatalogued works making this volume a most valuable addition to the field of Oceanic Art.
