about

Miskwabik, Metal of Ritual examines the thousands of beautiful and intricate ritual works of art--from ceremonial weaponry to delicate copper pendants and ear ornaments--created in eastern North America before the arrival of Europeans. The book provides unique insight into the motivation of the artisans and the significance of these objects and highlights the brilliance and sophistication of the early civilizations of the Americas. Comparing the ritual architecture and metallurgy of the original Americans with the ethnological record, Amelia M. Trevelyan begins to unravel the mystery of the significance of the objects as well as their special functions within the societies that created them. The book includes dozens of striking color and black and white photographs. The first and only comprehensive examination of this 3,000 year old tradition
