The works cover 2000 years from prehistoric times until the twentieth century and originate from Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei, Thailand, Cambodia, Burma, Laos, Vietnam and Philippines. They document the extraordinarily rich and diverse heritage of Southeast Asian art ranging in styles from ancient Javanese stone statues, extravagant Balinese carvings, Islamic decorative arts and gold Buddhist images.
