Synopsis: Hawaiian Sculpture documents most known extant indigenous carvings of the human figure and identifies their location in public and private collections. The over 164 illustrations illuminate the wooden sculpture of artists whose names are unknown but who were brilliant by any standard.

Review: "This is one of the few truly excellent books on the arts of people who did not keep written records."
