Product Description:

ARTS AND MYTHS VOLUME 2 returns to the heart of the “first arts” to introduce us to more
major artistic pieces from Africa, Oceania, the Americas, and Asia. Learn the myths behind six magnificent works of art, including:
• An Iatmul Skull from New Guinea
• A Hopi Kachina Doll from the American Southwest
• A Chinese Shadow Figure
• A Statue of the Voodoo God Gu from Benin
• A Kodiak Mask from Alaska
• An Mnong Gar Jar Stake from Vietnam
The films 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 art works emerges.
