Title: Sacred Dance - Encounter with the Gods
Description: New York, Thames and Hudson. 1986. (ISBN: 0500810060). Soft Cover, 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. A Fine unmarked copy. 128 pages. 142 illustrations, 30 in full colour. Dancing intensifies awareness, so that the dancer begins to understand how the universe is made up of infinite patterns of motion around a still centre. A primordial element of religious tradition, all over the world, the dance was a vital part of Early Christian worship, and survives in the whirling orbiting movements of the Dervishes in Turkey. In images ranging from Botticelli's dancing angels to the dance patterns of the South Seas, this book evokes one of man's oldest and profoundest impulses: to act out the movements of the powers that he senses within himself and within the world. 2. Fine/No Jacket.
