Fish Hooks of the Pacific Islands : A Pictorial Guide to the Fish Hooks from the Peoples of the Pacific Islands Hardback
The fish hook derives its form from its practical intention - to catch a fish.
But in cultures where fishing is and always has been a main livelihood, the crafting of fish hooks becomes an Art.
This volume features more than 600 fish hooks used by the peoples of the Pacific Islands, with life-size illustrations and accompanying texts.
