book description

The Language of Ornament is a companion and guide to the global panorama of ornament in terms that will be of equal value to craftworkers, collectors and students of art history. James Trilling presents an immense variety of ornament from the Paleolithic Age to the present day, enabling the reader to appreciate inherent form and beauty, as well as historical importance across cultures – whether in the monumental architecture of Mycenean Greece or the inlaid vessels of Zhou Dynasty China, in the bronze mirrors of early Celtic Britain or the carved or worn ornament of Native Americans.
