A Patchwork of Mosaics

A Patchwork of Mosaics

  • About

    By Thérèse Woodcock

    My interest in the use of the Lowenfeld Mosaic Test in the the study of cultural differences was first aroused by Dr. Rhoda Metraux when she came to the Institute of Child Psychology (founded by and where I trained under Dr Margaret Lowenfeld) to tell us of her anthropological work in the Iatmul village in the East Seplk District of Papua New Guinea. She showed us a collection of Mosaics made by the villagers. They were entirely different from anything I had ever seen, which was mainly Western European Mosaics. The collection as a whole bore no relation to the range of adult Mosaics which I had learnt to call ‘normal’.
