Book Description

This book examines ancient figurines from several world areas to address recurring challenges in the interpretation of prehistoric art. Should comparison between contexts play a role in interpretation? Early interpreters seized fancifully on resemblances between figurines from different places, but contemporary practice rejects such interpretive leaps. Richard G. Lesure argues for the necessity of comparison and offers a new analytical framework.
