Handbook of Ceramic Animal Symbols in the Ancient Lesser Antilles (Florida Museum of Natural History: Ripley P. Bullen Series)
In this volume, Lawrence Waldron focuses on the cultural significance of nearly two dozen animal and bird representations found in Saladoid-era ceramics, surveying zoomorphic iconography in over twenty major collections. He integrates ethnozoology and ethology with traditional narratives and demonstrates that different animal representations dominated on particular islands. Waldron shows how regional disparities may have been politically savvy expressions of cultural distinctions among emergent Caribbean subgroups.
The result is a multidisciplinary reference text that will be invaluable to scholars and students seeking an interpretation of visual culture in the archaeological record.
Lawrence Waldron is instructor of art history and studio art at the City University of New York, USA.
