Southeast Asian - General

The art of Southeast Asia reflects a diversity of influences. From Indians scouring the region for gold to Islamic, Dutch, and Portuguese merchants in search of new spices, each visiting culture has placed its own influence on Southeast Asian art. It is this international influence combined with indigenous traditions that has made Southeast Asian art so intriguing to collectors.

Indigenous traditional art from Southeast Asia includes batik textiles, wayang puppet theatre, and gamelan orchestras that predate the incursion of non-indigenous peoples. The iconography of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam intermingle with elements of folklore and native mysticism to produce creations that are both familiar and ethereal to the Western eye.

The artwork of this broad geographic area is united by its cultural amalgamation, which seamlessly brings together the traditions of people from all ends of the earth into works of undeniable power and beauty.
