"Images in Stone addresses two problems : it develops a theory of art interpretation and uses the theory to decipher some social-structural and cultural aspects of a society whose only record of their passing is the carved incisions made about 5,000 years ago. The work is based on the images collected from Lake of the Woods, Canada, Many of these images are presented here for the first time."--Back cover.
