This striking collection of 30 ready-to-color illustrations display the bold designs of Indian arts and crafts. Clearly rendered in fine detail, these royalty-free images depict a wide array of patterns taken from rugs, masks, sandpaintings, pottery, jewelry, baskets, and other artifacts created by southwestern Native Americans. Included are geometrical designs on a Navajo woven saddlebag, a Chumash rock painting of mythical creatures, a colorful Hopi kachina doll, a lovely Acoma bowl decorated with floral and animal designs, an Apache “crown headdress,” and 25 other handsome motifs. A delight for coloring book fans, this expressive collection will also be useful to designers and crafts people in search of authentic Southwestern tribal art.
