"To Weave and Sing is a beautiful book that crosses disciplines—a celebration of the human imagination that transcends cultural barriers."—Lucy R. Lippard, author of Pop Art and Overlay: Contemporary Art and the Art of Prehistory

"
In David Guss's To Weave and Sing, the core of the world's most cryptic cultural region takes form and shines by its own light."—Roy Wagner, University of Virginia

"Guss takes us a good way into the sacred ideology of the Yekuana basket and into the minds of the Yekuana as they sing their baskets into existence. . . . I would call this a seminal and path-breaking work, one of the most stimulating and significant in many a year on South American
Indian culture."—Peter T. Furst, University of Pennsylvania Museum
