Abstract:

"For thousands of years humans have adorned themselves. Adornment figures among the constellation of traits that signify the arrival of modern human behavior in the archaeological record - a key part of the cultural innovations that distinguish us from all our bipedal predecessors of the past several million years. Wherever they ventured, wherever they lived, modern people made art and adornments to accompany them in life and in death." "In this book William Morris celebrates this ancient and universal human quality and continues his exploration of the themes of origin and myth that permeate all his work."--Jacket.
