For centuries the Naga, composed of more than 30 individual tribes, have lived in relative isolation in the mountainous area of Northeast India and upper Burma. This magnificent book explores the art and culture of the Naga peoples living in a remote region known as the "Last Great Mystery of Asia." Looking beyond the Nagas' past as fierce headhunters, it focuses on their unique way of life that rarely separates the spiritual from the social. Images of important festivals and ceremonies reveal a proud people whose animist beliefs and shamanic practices are displayed in gorgeous artwork, jewelry, costumes, traditional architecture and musical instruments. Printed Pages: 192 with 350 colour illustrations.
