Item description for The Moon as Shoe: Drawings of the San by Miklos Szalay...

The San people have lived for thousands of years on the harsh plains of Kalahari in southern Africa and are the oldest indigenous people of the region. At the end of the nineteenth century, anthropologists Wilhelm Bleek and Lucy Lloyd traveled to southern Africa to document the San's language and culture through their drawings. Now assembled for the first time in The Moon as Shoe, the drawings of the San come together in a striking visual essay of San history and culture.

The diverse array of colorful watercolors and sketches were primarily created by six San men interviewed by Bleek and Lloyd. Augmenting the brilliant image reproductions are expert essays by distinguished contributors such as Elias Canetti and Megan Biesele. The volume also features additional contemporary works by Ivory Coast artist Frdric Bruly Bouabre and South African artist Keith Dietrich. A wholly original and compelling collection of indigenous art, The Moon as Shoe is essential for all collectors and scholars of African art.
