KIRKUS REVIEW

A lavish, oversized potpourri of sculpture, paintings, prints, masks and objects -- not all of them directly related to sun or moon motifs -- from various primitive, ancient and exotic (Far Eastern) cultures. The accompanying text consists of a few myth retellings and paragraph-long captions to the photos -- occasionally indulging in such touristy half-truths as ""The Japanese believe that devils and ghosts exist in neon-lighted Tokyo as well as in the wooded countryside."" Strictly for browsing.
