"Broad subjects, such as rites of passage, are treated in the general entries. These entries address universal motifs and themes such as the center, the layered universe, the four/six directions, and architecture as a symbol of the cosmos. Other major issues included here are color, the role of animals in art, color symbolism, and the symbolism of the various parts of the human body. This reference also details the reciprocal impact of colonization on native art and native art on modern Western art."--BOOK JACKET.
