About the Author

Ayinla Shilu Ao was born in Kohima, Nagaland, but received all her formal education outside the state; boarding schools in Darjeeling and Bangalore and universities in Delhi (Miranda House and Delhi University) and Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This has become her area of specialization as a writer and consultant. She has written on the Nagas for French GEO and the catalogue for a photo-exhibit on the nagas at the Crafts Museum in Delhi and at the Musee de l'Homme in Paris, for which she was also a consultant. She continues to compile and document Naga traditions so that they can be recorded before they are forgotten.

25 of 25 people found the following review helpful By David M. Said on August 22, 2005
This flimsy publication lacks anything beyond the bare miniumum of detailed information on the featured pieces in this exhiition and the accompanying text was dissapointingly generic. There are a couple of really good books on Naga art, such as "The Nagas, Hill People of North East India", but this is not one of them. The word that describes it best is superficial. I am sorry I bought it.

Contrary to what two previous reviewers have expressed, I'm finding this book very beautiful and informative. The only other thing I would have liked--for my purpose--would have been detailed descriptions of techniques (though I didn't expect to find them). Not only are the photos excellent and large, but also illustrated materials are noted in the captions; moreover, the well-written accompanying text provides concise (rather than rambling,wind-bagged) context for the various types of items. However, die-hard historians or those of similar ilk will need additional info.

PS I'm a retired content/copy editor for university faculty, as well
as copy editor for JAMA (Journal of the American Medical
Association).
