(10/11/2008)

Studied and admired by scholars since the 19th century, the traditional arts of the Batak tribes who live in the mountainous areas of northern Sumatra has long waited for a comprehensive compendium study. That need has been largely answered with the publication of a lavishly illustrated book including hundreds of previously unpublished masterpieces of Batak sculpture from the Delta Collection.

Batak Sculpture - written by Achim Sibeth and Bali-based author Bruce Carpenter, is a visual tour de force and represents a milestone in publications on Indonesian tribal arts.

Include in this never-before-published collection of Batak sculptural pieces are exquisitely photographed images of magic staffs, medicine horns, medicine containers, wooden ancestor statues, stone sculptures, architectural sculptures, lutes, weapons, metal sculptures, masks, animal sculptures and other heirloom objects. 288 pages and 300 pictures with accompanying informative text provide insights and information on Batak culture and its rich tradition of sculpture.

About the Authors

ACHIM SIBETH pursued art history and cultural anthropology at the University of Freiburg, where he developed an interest in Indonesian culture, especially that of the Batak, Javanese and Ngadha of Central Flores. A prolific scholar, he has done extensive fieldwork in Indonesia, and written several important books on its art and culture. Notably, he is well-respected for his expertise on Batak art and sculpture. He has also organized highly acclaimed exhibitions of traditional and contemporary Indonesian art. He has held the position of curator at the well-known Linden Museum in Stuttgart, and is now with Frankfurt’s World Museum.

BRUCE W. CARPENTER is a Bali-based author and art expert who might have studied art history at university but claims he owes his broad knowledge of Indonesian art, culture and history to independent study and direct experience. A leading expert, scholar, dealer and writer, he has authored and co-authored over ten books and numerous essays on Indonesian art including the acclaimed book, W.O.J. Nieuwenkamp, First European Artist in Bali.

Batak Sculpture is published by Editions Didier Millet Pte Ltd.

ISBN: 9789814155854.
