ABOUT THIS BOOK : This book describes the material culture of those Borneo people found in significant numbers within the East Malaysian state of Sarawak. In this slim but comprehensive volume, the author introduces the reader to the major crafts of the region -- carving, metalwork, plaiting and basketry, beadwork, and weaving -- which not only incorporate many of the beliefs of the people and reflect their way of life, but use the simplest of materials from the tropical rainforest which still covers much of the state. Although methods, materials and motifs are changing to suit market demands and the availability of materials, the skill and artistic sensitivity of the idigenous people of Sarawak remain reflected in those crafts which are still being made today. Hardcover, 92 pages.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR : Heidi Munan has lived in Kuching and written about Borneo culture for over 30 years.
