Summary

Annotation. For Australians, Bali is easily the best known and most frequently visited island of Indonesia. It is thus surprising that Bali: island of the gods is the first comprehensive exhibition of Balinese art to be held on this continent. Drawn exclusively from the Gallery's rich and varied holdings, it showcases some of the most exciting sculptures, paintings, textiles and manuscripts in our Indonesian collection. Together these works demonstrate the brilliance and dynamism of the only remaining Hindu culture in the Southeast Asian region.
