Críticas:

"Eyes of the Ancestors is the most comprehensive and compelling book on the subject since J.P. Barbier's Art of the Archaic Indonesians (1981) but this book offers so much more information in an impeccable package--making it an 'instant classic' and a 'must have' for anyone in traditional arts." --Alex Arthur, Tribal Art magazine "Simply the best book ever published on this subject." --Sir David Attenborough

Reseña del editor:

Lavish photography and groundbreaking new texts unlock the magic of the island cultures of Indonesia, Malaysia, and East Timor through examples of textiles, sculpture, and metalwork from this prestigious collection. 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 jewellery, 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.
