Indonesia Through Masks and Textiles, a rare exhibition of traditional masks and textile products, is presently going on at Jenggala Gallery, Bali. This unique expo that began on August 14, will continue to draw attention of art and history lovers till September 19.

Indonesian masks are the most exotic in the world, but many traditional mask-makers have given up their precious legacy. In collaboration with Tiempo Gallery and The House of Masks, Jenggala has gathered an exhibition of antique masks from all over Indonesia in hopes of reviving appreciation for this extraordinary heritage.

Tiempo Gallery hosts a wide range of original antiques, artifacts and objets d'art from around the country. This exhibition has some of their best pieces, all of which are for sale, celebrates masks and textiles with over 200 years of Indonesian history. These ancient legacies come from all over the archipelago, stretching from Sumatra to Papua New Guinea.

Kubu Bingin, The House of Masks, is devoted to keeping the art of Indonesian masks alive through a combination of education, conservation and entertainment. The new exhibition highlights a dozen of their favourite items from their 1,020-piece collection, including comical figures from traditional performances and exceptional ritual masks found in ancient caves in Kalimantan. These masterpieces, however, are not for sale.

Based in Bali, an island renowned for its creative artwork, Jenggala is a leading producer of high-quality, handcrafted ceramics. Their workshop draws upon the talents of 190 Balinese craftspeople and is inspired by the wealth and diversity of Indonesian culture.
