Der Verlag über das Buch excellent images of exuberant cultural decoration'The rugged mountains of southwest Saudi Arabia define an area with unique environmental and cultural features. Ethnographer Mauger twice has explored the Asir region recording some of its most distinctive characteristics - striking domestic architecture distinguished both in form and by traditions of exuberant decoration expressed through ornamental stonework and brilliantly colored exterior and interior murals. The book is prodominantly a photo essay with excellent color images of often spactacular architectural decoration....The book is highly recommended as a visual record of the litle-known art tradition hreatened with extinction because of modernization.'---Eugene C.
