This vivid and detailed pictorial surveys Charles and Valerie Diker's collection of Native American sculptural dolls. The miniatures are elaborately dressed and accessorized to stunning effect, showcasing traditional techniques and materials including beading, hide, fur, grass, shells, quills and human hair. The remarkable photography of Kiyoshi Togashi is accompanied by interviews conducted by Lois Sherr Dubin (curator and expert on American Indian jewelry) with the 6 women artists represented, in which each characterizes the history, process, motifs and philosophy behind her work in general, as well as the individual pieces. Distributed by the U. of Oklahoma Press.
