Eyes of the Ancestors: The Arts of Island Southeast Asia at the Dallas Museum of Art was published this year and recently won the 2013 Prix International du Livre d’Art Tribal. The book celebrates the Dallas Museum of Art’s (DMA) collection of Island Southeast Asian art, which includes works from Indonesia, East Malaysia, and East Timor.
Produced by Marquand Books and designed by Jeff Wincapaw, Eyes of the Ancestors was edited by Reimar Schefold, in collaboration with Steven G. Alpert. The 336-page book features more than 200 full-color illustrations. Essays by distinguished international scholars, such as George Ellis and Nico de Jonge, illuminate the artistry of the island cultures.
