      Sacred Art: Catholic Saints and Candomble Gods in Modern Brazil
Sacred art flourishes today in northeastern Brazil, where European and African religious traditions have intersected for centuries Professional artists create images of both the Catholic saints and the African gods of Candombl to meet the needs of a vast market of believers and art collectors.Over the past decade, Henry Glassie and Pravina Shukla conducted intense research in the states of Bahia and Pernambuco, interviewing the artists at length, photographing their processes and products, attending Catholic and Candombl services, and finally creating a comprehensive book, governed by a deep understanding of the artists themselves.Beginning with Edival Rosas, who carves monumental baroque statues for churches, and ending with Francisco Santos, who paints images of the gods for Candombl terreiros, the book displays the diversity of Brazilian artistic techniques and religious interpretations Glassie and Shukla enhance their findings with comparisons from art and religion in the United States, Nigeria, Portugal, Turkey, India, Bangladesh, and Japan and gesture toward an encompassing theology of power and beauty that brings unity into the spiritual art of the world.
