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.
