This is a glorious overview of the human figure as it has appeared on or in ceramic form from prehistoric times up to the present. The human form was one of the earliest images to appear in artwork, and with ceramics it took various forms - sometimes drawn on the surface, sometimes made into the shape of a vessel and sometimes made into a statue. In this book Betty Blandino looks at how artists from all over the world have tackled this subject. The result is a fascinating and beautiful survey of one of the mainstream themes of art history.
