Abstract (English)

"Of the three works covered here, which the National Museum of the American Indian brought to the Venice Biennale, one offers a tribute to a Luiseno Indian who traveled from Luna's tribal home in California to Rome to study for the priesthood in 1834. Luna oscillates between shaman and showman, a duality highlighted by this book's lenticular cover. " -- publisher's website
