      Description(s)

      In Bali, textiles are more than just decorative fabrics; they are imbued with magical powers and deep ritual significance. Gods, humans, trees, and even temples are arrayed on festival days in exquisite hand-wrought cloths, some of which rank among the most spectacular examples of traditional textile art in the world. In this illustrated book, three experts examine the history, production, and ritual uses of textiles in Balinese society.
