Description: This is sold as a pak consisting of the books Image as Idea: The Arts in Global Culture and Hybrid Culture: Mix-Art. IMAGE AS IDEA: The Arts in Global Cultures traces relationships among creative works in the visual, performing, literary, and media arts in terms of the cultural ideas and values informing them. Universal, cross-cultural themes--such as sacred mountains, labyrinths, and transformative journeys--are examined in terms of differences and similarities, using examples from a variety of cultures.

This book would serve as a highly informative reading for those interest in cross-cultural comparisons in the arts, or as a stimulating text for courses dealing with interdisciplinary studies on the arts in world cultures.
