Philippines, archipel des échanges
"This very beautiful book is devoted to the arts of the pre-colonial Philippines. It is published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Quai Branly museum last April 2013. The historic and unprecedented exhibition, containing more than 300 works, is the first major exhibition in France in the last twenty years devoted to the archipelago of the Philippines.
While contributions from international specialists aim to reveal the wealth of material and immaterial exchanges that have crossed the archipelago since the history of their settlement by the Austronesians, the catalog is illustrated with first-rate iconographic material: historical works selected from the Philippine, American and European public collections, as well as from private collections: archaeological objects, gold jewelry, adornments, ritual objects, weapons, textiles, etc." - Sourced from pierredevallombreuse.com
