Le livre EYES OF THE ANCESTORS : THE ARTS OF ISLAND SOUTHEAST ASIA AT THE DALLAS MUSEUM OF ART, écrit par REIMAR SCHEFOLD, STEVEN G., COLLECTIF, édité par YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS coute 74,00 €.

Eyes of the Ancestors takes an in-depth look at the Dallas Museum of Art's world-renowned collection of artworks from Island Southeast Asia. Beautiful photography and essays by distinguished international scholars unlock the magic of the island cultures of Indonesia, Sarawak, and East Timor. Leading anthropologist Reimar Schefold introduces these texts, which investigate various indigenous art forms from a fresh art-historical perspective. They describe the contexts, purposes, and aesthetic influences of a range of objects, from intricately woven sacred and ceremonial textiles to carved ancestor figures. Also featured are gold and metalwork designs as well as weaponry and jewelry, most dating back more than a hundred years. A 19th-century mouth mask in the collection, from the Leti Islands, is one of only our known to be in existence. Carved in the shape of a bird's head, this wooden mask was used in ritual dances. Other spectacular examples from the collection likewise reflect the beliefs and practices of these island peoples.

Reimar Schefold is professor emeritus of the anthropology and sociology of Indonesia at the University of Leiden and the former chairman of the Royal Institute of Linguistics and Anthropology.
