Sabra Moore offers a treasury of faithful artistic renderings of ancient native art from all regions of the North American continent. Accompanying her drawings are descriptions designed for the general reader that provide information on the location of each work of art; the culture from which it came; and what is known about its significance and meaning for the people who created it. The images include animals and objects, humans, hybrid human-animal forms, symbols, calendars and star markers, and celestial beings incised in caves, on cliffs and boulders, on artifacts, and even under water. This book is an appealing introduction to this unique art form -- its range, diversity, and locations -- as well as a record of many sites that are endangered or damaged or have recently been destroyed. Sabra Moore is an artist residing in New Mexico. She has created fifteen artist's books, some of which are in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Brooklyn Museum, and other institutions. She has exhibited extensively in New York, Canada. New Mexico, and Brazil, and her drawings appear in Through Indian Eyes and a recent edition of Bulfinch's Mythology.
