Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document
This source on Karajá art is divided into two parts. The
first covers various forms of representative art, according to whether they are "plastic
art” such as plaiting, wood carving, and clay and wax figures, or if they are "surface
representations” or drawings, including sand drawings, incising and painting of gourds,
and the use of the author's supply of pencils and paper to make sketchbook drawings. The
second part deals with decorative art, with information on patterns borrowed from the
plaiting technique, forms of carved decorations, and "poker work" (pyroengraving), with
commentary on differences in women's art.
