Synopsis The Polynesian concept of atua—of gods, figurative objects and associated beliefs—developed over thousands of years and spread throughout the region. The superb examples of sculpture illustrated in this volume provide an island-by-island insight into this rich and intriguing heritage. Published for the National Gallery of Australia's new exhibition Atua: sacred gods from Polynesia,where the gallery has negotiated loans from more than 30 museum collections around the world. The exhibition explores the relationship between atua and art, between spirits and sculpture, between gods and priests, between women and men. It looks at some of the most unique works of art in the Polynesian world and tries to make sense of an enduring mystery surrounding religious objects and their association with belief in gods.
