Drawn from the National Gallery's extensive collection of silks, cottons, batiks, gold brocades, tie-dyes and embroideries, this book features some of the greatest surviving examples of traditional Indian and Indonesian textiles. Traversing the Indian Ocean via sailors and merchants, priests and warriors, these textiles feature Ramayana epics, elephant and camel processions, trading ships and floral designs. Sari to sarong documents the remarkable exchange of ideas, materials, design and imagery (royal and religious) which has occurred between the two great cultures of India and Indonesia.
