Notes: Description: Embued by the Balinese with magical powers and deep social significane, textiles play a vital role in all religious observances. Gods, humans, and even temples are arrayed on festival days in exquisite hand-wrought fabrics, several of which rank among the most spectacular ever produced by the textile arts of Southeast Asia. In this beautifully illustrated book, three experts examine the history, production and uses of textiles in Balinese society. Many fine pieces are presented, their raw materials and methods of weaving and dyeing are described, and the complex symbolism and ritual functions of each are explained in detail.
