Gold Jewellery of the Indonesian Archipelago features more than 700 unpublished masterpieces from the tribal, ethnic and courtly gold body adornment traditions of Indonesia_s outer islands _ Sumatra, Sulawesi, the Lesser Sundas and Southeast Maluku. Made available by the Mandala Foundation in Singapore, these pieces date from the 4th to the 20th century, and many are completely unknown, extremely rare and of high quality. This is the first major book on the gold jewellery of the Indonesian archipelago in more than 25 years. Authors Anne Richter and Bruce W. Carpenter, aided by Mandala Foundation curator Achim Sibeth and David A. Henkel, weave together the latest research with historical photos, illustrations and their knowledge of the history, culture, art and mythology of the region to produce a groundbreaking new book that thrusts the virtuoso gold work of Indonesia into the international spotlight.
