This is a comprehensive account of the royal and museum collections of dazzling jewellery in Southeast Asia.
Encompassing all the territory covered by the modern boundaries of Myanmar, Malaysia, Singapore, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand , Indonesia, and the Philippines, the author examines the way in which jewellery forms are related to belief systems, social organizations, political structures, trading contacts, and diverse techniques. The photographs of jewellery in this book include necklaces, buckles, pendants, belts, buttons, ear studs, hairpins, anklets, torques, bracelets, and other pieces.
