Kent McManis has written a welcome sequel to his immensely popular book that covered the essentials of animal fetish carvings. Now he leads us further into this fascinating and expanding art form. Volume II: The Materials and the Carvers describes the many materials that Zuni artists work with today and discusses eleven more carving families. As McManis' many readers have come to expect, the book is loaded with photographs of contemporary fetishes by the best Zuni carvers, from the traditional white healing bears carved out of alabaster to a lapis lazuli mountain lion for deer hunting. The whimsical and innovative are also included, such as a Picasso marble dinosaur and a stained glass mole.
