Vigorous and elegant, traditional African designs have exercised a powerful influence on modern art and have long been prized in their own right. With nearly 200 illustrations, this classic survey covers geometric patterns and motifs in basketry, textiles, beadwork, wood and ivory carving, body painting, calabashes and metalwork, placing the designs within their tribal context and explaining the traditions that have shaped them. Originally published in 1966.
