A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. This title discusses about rare and mysterious pottery from the Mississippian Culture. In 1981, James F. Cherry embarked on what evolved into a passionate, personal quest to identify and document all the known headpots of Mississippian Indian culture from northeast Arkansas and the bootheel region of southeast Missouri. Produced by two groups the Spanish called the Casqui and Pacaha and dating circa AD 1400-1700, headpots occur, with few exceptions, only in a small region of Arkansas and Missouri. Relatively little is known about these headpots: did they portray kinsmen or enemies, the living or the dead or were they used in ceremonies, in everyday life, or exclusively for the sepulcher? Cherry s decades of research have culminated in the lavishly illustrated The Headpots of Northeast Arkansas and Southern Pemiscot County, Missouri , a fascinating, comprehensive catalog of 138 identified classical style headpots and an invaluable resource for understanding the meaning of these remarkable ceramic vessels.

Critique:

"A volume of lasting value to professional and avocational archaeologists, museum curators, art historians, and collectors of Precolumbian artifacts... indispensable to researchers interested in the late prehistory of the Midsouth." - Robert C. Mainfort Jr., From the Foreword"
