This book is a very good read. The author looks at art in Indonesia and its political aspects. The author also offers engaging reflections on life and research in an rural area of Indonesia. The author focuses especially on a people called the Toraja, who live on Sulawesi island. She writes about the symbols carved on their houses, their carved sculptures of the dead, their rituals and their local museums. She also looks at how tourism has changed their lives, and at how their art is looked at by other Indonesians. If you wondered what it was like to be an anthropologist living Indonesia, what village life is like, or what Indonesian art is all about, this book is for you.
