This definitive survey offers rare glimpses of a dying art. Banned for decades by colonial authorities, the ancient tattoo rituals were vanishing at the time of this 1921 survey. Thirty-eight plates of black-and-white drawings and photographs provide an unusually complete, intimate, and authentic account of a sophisticated art.
