The art of the Batak tribes of the mountains of northern Sumatra has been admired by collectors and scholars since the 19th century. However, only a limited number of pieces have been published over the years. This lavishly illustrated book, which includes literally hundreds of previously unpublished masterpieces of Batak sculpture from the Delta Collection, has changed that forever. This volume is enriched by insightful information from Achim Sibeth, one of the world’s leading experts of Batak culture and art. A visual tour de force, this book is a milestone in publications on Southeast Asian and Indonesian tribal arts.
