Cover Art by Anne Coe
This book was partially written on Kathryn Coe’s studies in anthropology and her research in Spain, Mexico, South America and the Southwestern United States and partially based on intense conversations Kathryn and Anne Coe had regarding art. In our society it has long been believed that art serves very little social purpose. This book uses art to examine the evolutionary history of modern humans. Kathryn looks at the visual arts of traditional societies for clues. Our evolutionary history, she argues, was guided largely by elders, women, and culture, the arts in particular.
