Rear cover notes: "Created in a vast range of sizes and styles, abstract or realistic, Eskimo masks were both representations of spirits and a way of communicating with them. Magnificent photographs by Alfred Blaker from the extensive Lowie Museum collection, with additional examples from other sources, complement Dorothy Jean Ray's vivid text to provide a thorough and incisive analysis of the masks. Anthropologists and archeologists as well as those with special interest in the Eskimo will enthusiastically welcome the reprinting of this volume [originally published in 1967]." The book includes 70 plates, in color and black & white, many of which include numerous images.
