The Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia
This stunning volume celebrates the Museum of Anthropology's rich past and promising future. Lavishly illustrated, it highlights treasures from the museum's vast collections, which include historic and contemporary carvings, ceramics, sculptures, textiles, and other arts from Asia, the South Pacific, North and South America, Africa, and Europe, along with magnificent totem poles, sculptures, woven pieces, and intricate items made of gold, silver, and argillite from British Columbia's Northwest Coast. A brief history of the museum, stories about each collection, and extended captions offer fascinating details for the reader.
