This companion guide provides a richly illustrated survey of the Denver Art Museum's Oceanic collections. Organized by the four major regions of Oceania (Polynesia, Melanesia, Micronesia, and Australia), the 100-page book contains 80 color photos, including close-ups that allow the reader to see incredible details that would not be visible even in the gallery.

Nancy J. Blomberg, Chief Curator and Curator of Native Arts, discuss the history of the museum's Oceanic collections, characteristics of Oceanic art, and the process, materials, and meaning of objects ranging from gigantic masks and feather cloaks to colorful architectural elements and armor. The book also contains a personal reminiscence of collecting in Papua New Guinea by Ellen Anderman, whose family donated hundreds of Oceanic objects to the museum.
