Over thousands of years across the Indonesian archipelago, dynamic ancestral art has been created to venerate ancestors, deities and spirits of nature. Through exquisite sculpture, ceremonial objects, regalia and weapons, the works of art in the Christopher Worrall Wilson Bequest at the Art Gallery of New South Wales demonstrate the antiquity and continuity of animist religious and cultural practices in island Southeast Asia.
