Magic and art form alliances, as for example the religious art of Africa or Asia shows quite clearly. Under the surface, the magical intent of staving off threats can be seen even in modern European art. The meticulous analysis of magical and aesthetic actions presented in this book reveals their complementary relationship and in addition shows the important function that both types of actions fulfill for human beings when dealing with their world.
