A distinguished scholar of Southwestern Native arts for over thirty years, J. J. Brody returns to his early work on the Mimbres ceramic tradition, which established him as the leading authority on the arts of this ancient people. In this revised edition, Dr. Brody incorporates the extensive fieldwork done on Mimbres sites since the original publication in 1977, updating his discussion of village life, the larger world in which the Mimbres people lived, and how the art that they practiced illuminates these wider issues. This engaging work establishes a new standard for the artistic interpretation of a classic Southwestern culture for the new century and will interest archaeologists, art historians, and all people who enjoy the beauty, humor and humanity of Mimbres pottery.
