Information
Journey with fifteen scholars to Southeast Asia and neighbouring countries to discover the hidden meanings behind traditional textiles.

Throughout Asia, textiles have played an important role in concepts of power and kingship and are also closely associated with shamanistic, Buddhism, and Islamic beliefs. The papers presented in this work represent the scholarship and research of leading scholars from around the world who participated in The James HW Thompson Foundation symposium Status, Myth and the Supernatural -- Unravelling the Secrets of Southeast Asian Textiles which was held in Bangkok in August of 2005. With hundreds of colour illustrations and much new material not previously published, this 250 page volume present many new perspectives on a fascinating topic.
