NEW BOOKS BY PIETRO GAIETTO (in italian)



Catalog of the European Paleolithic sculpture Collection Gaietto
2012 Lulu.com

Collection of 222 Paleolithic anthropomorphic and zoomorphic sculptures of various European nations, classified into 12 types and attributed to a period of about two million years.
The idea of this catalog is born as a result of a hoped placement of the sculptures in the museums of prehistoric archeology of the Regions on of Italy, in which they were found.
The division of the sculptures in 12 typologies progressively produced over two million years is helpful to the scholar, as it allows to visually interpret the evolution of the depicted human species, of the composition of the sculptures, of the types of stone work, of the type of the sculptures (religious subjects) and also to appreciate the evolution of the types of stylistic deformation (artistic fashion).
