From a Mnong Gar jar stake in Vietnam to a Kodiak mask in Alaska to a Hopi Kachina doll in the American Southwest, explore the myths and beliefs that inspired the creation of six artistic works from five continents. The series segments -- which also examine a statue of the voodoo god Gu from Benin, an Itamul skull from New Guinea and a shadow figure from China -- offer insight into the pieces' uses and cultural significance.
