TRIBAL BIBLE

(The Old Testament)
OR
TATTOOS OF THE ANCIENTS
A History of the Development of Body Art

a series of serious in-depth studies
written, illustrated and compiled
by
Phoenix & Arabeth
1997-2003


The TRIBAL BIBLE is a series of about a dozen large format books. All the volumes contain an extensive text and are profusely illustrated. Phoenix & Arabeth are creating a variety of original drawings specifically for this work. Many of them reconstruct facial and body markings and ornaments from ancient sources: mummies, pottery, bronzes, weapons, murals, glyphs and various other artifacts. In addition, numerous pertinent illustrations from traditional sources, both ancient and modern, are collected together here in one place for the first time. New discoveries in archaeology, anthropology, ethnography and ancient history are combined with original research to bring a new perspective to the subject.

TRIBAL BIBLE (The Old Testament) volumes will be released sequentially over the next several years. Volume 1, 2 and 3 are now available.
