  • Thumbnail for Kubera
    Kubera

    Dark, red sandstone artifact from Madhya Pradesh. 6 x 4.5 x 3 inches. One of the guardians of the eight directions, Kubera belongs to a class of ancient folk deities called yakshas, who were adopted by Buddhism, Jainism, and Hinduism. He represents the power of monetary wealth. He conventionally holds a bowl or pomegranate in his right hand and a moneybag in his left. A mongoose that has the power to vomit a wish-fulfilling gem normally accompanies him. This is a fine quality image that was originally made as an architectural detail for a Hindu temple.

  • Thumbnail for Balinese painting on cloth
    Balinese painting on cloth

    Signed in ink in margin: Made Sudana. Rice farmer. Batuan, Bali - tourist painting. (When western tourists request signatures on otherwise unsigned paintings at the point of sale, the seller may write a name in the margin which may be his own, or may be that of the painter. Because there are only four personal names used in Bali for both men and women, there will be an enormous number of people alive at any given moment with exactly the same name. In this case one quarter of every member of a Sudana lineage will be named Made.)

    One of group of six Balinese paintings of women

    Six virtually identical paintings varying slightly in size depicting four bare breasted Balinese women surrounding a fifth operating a traditional loom ( a skill important to her desirability as a wife). This set is illustrative of a mode of routine production in which Balinese culture is transformed into a marketable commodity and a way of making a living in the developing cash economy of 20th century Indonesia. Dickinson accesssioned items 1985.8.41.11 and 12 are similar to the other six, but depict other idealized female activities: applying cosmetics, dressing and making flower ornaments.

  • Thumbnail for Balinese female figure
    Balinese female figure

    Part of a set;These are small statues known as pretima or pratima in Bali that likely date to the mid-twentieth century. Such objects are preserved in small temple shrines and taken out in procession on festival occasions. Their specific identities are iconographically unmarked. They are known only through context, community memory and ritual use. On occasions of temple renovation a Brahmana priest sometimes ritually repaints pretima. The male figure appears to have been repainted in this way and the female figure has not. This explains its relatively crude painting by contrast to the more refined painting on the female figure, which would have been done by an artisan at the time of its production.
