This beautifully illustrated and substantial volume aims to make Batuan paintings accessible to viewers from outside Bali. It does this by explaining some of the cultural codes that the paintings contain, as well as narratives that link them to the rich Balinese and Southeast Asian traditions. It also demonstrates how these paintings communicate their meanings beyond Batuan's cultural life, directly through their formal elements of line, shape and tone. Complete with 327 full colour reproductions, 24 illustrations, maps and diagrams. 337pp. Bookseller Inventory #
