A tribute to Vancouver's Museum of Anthropology, published to accompany the opening of the museum's dramatic redesign.

In early 2010, the internationally acclaimed Museum of Anthropology will open its doors on a major renewal project, including the new Multiversity Galleries, the first of their type in the world, which will give visitors access to the curatorial and archival work being done behind the scenes.

This stunning volume celebrates the museum's rich past and promising future. Lavishly illustrated, it highlights 150 treasures from the museum's vast collections, which include historic and contemporary carvings, ceramics, sculptures, paintings and textiles from Asia, the South Pacific, North and South America, Africa and Europe, along with magnificent totem poles, sculptures, carved boxes, feast dishes, baskets and intricate items made of gold, silver and argillite from the northwest coast of B.C. Short histories of each collection and extended captions offer fascinating details.
