These works in stone, ceramic, wood, and metal range from highly abstracted, minimalist representations of temples and houses to elaborate complexes populated with figures, conveying a rich sense of ancient ritual and daily life. Although described as models, these effigies were created not so much as reflections or prototypes of existing structures, but rather as critical, conceptual components of funerary practice and beliefs about an afterlife.   Design for Eternity is the first publication in English to explore these architectural works, providing new insights into ancient American design and how it reflected the practices of daily life. The vivid illustrations and texts focus on architectural representation, as well as the role these intriguing sculptures played in mediating relationships among the living, the dead, and the divine.    Condition: Brand New, ISBN: 9781588395764, EAN: 9781588395764, Book Title: Design for Eternity : Architectural Models from the Ancient Americas, Item Length: 0.9in., Publisher: Yale University, Publication Year: 2015, Format: Trade Paperback, Language: English, Item Height: 0in., Author: Joanne Pillsbury, Genre: Design, Art, Crafts & Hobbies, Topic: Carving, Collections, Catalogs, Exhibitions / General, History / Ancient & Classical, American / General, Decorative Arts, Native American, Item Width: 1in., Item Weight: 17.4 Oz, Number of Pages: 100 Pages
