The Face

Our Human Story

Debra N Mancoff

Exploring the human experience through the representation of the face in art, Debra Mancoff presents over 360 artefacts ranging from prehistoric figurines to Renaissance drawings, and from 16th-century African masks to 20th-century photographs, all selected from the British Museum’s collections. The book is arranged by theme, from birth and childhood, through love and beauty, faith, power and identity to death – the gallery of faces ending with an Aztec human skull covered in turquoise and lignite mosaic.
