Afro-American Arts of the Suriname Rain Forest.

Written by Sally and Richard Price.
University of California Press, Berkeley, 1980. 237 pp., many black-and-white duotones and color illustrations, 9x11".

The Maroon societies of Suriname are communities created by the descendents of escaped African slaves of Dutch colonists. This beautifully illustrated book provides a history of art and its role in Maroon society, from the design of everyday objects to ceremonial pieces. The authors' approach is ethnographic and ethnoaesthetic, presenting an inside view of the Maroons and the strikingly beautiful art objects, textiles, implements, musical instruments, and decorations which result from the blending and modification of diverse cultural heritages.
