Transcript of MALAYSIAN AND INDONESIA ART
Art is a diverse range of human activities and the products of those activities, usually involving imaginative or technical skill. In their most general form these activities include the production of works of art, the criticism of art, the study of the history of art, and the aesthetic dissemination of art.
ART IN MALAYSIA
Traditional Malaysian art was mainly centered on the areas of carving, weaving, and silversmithing. Traditional art ranges from handwoven baskets from rural areas to the silver work of the Malay courts. Common artworks included ornamental kris, beetle nut sets, and woven batik and songket fabrics. Indigenous East Malaysians are known for their wooden masks.Each ethnic group have distinct performing arts, with little overlap between them. However, Malay art does show some North Indian influence due to the historical influence of India
ART IN INDONESIA
Indonesian art forms can include designs traced back to early animistic beliefs, ancestor worship, Hindu or Buddhist influenced motifs brought by Indian traders, Chinese or Islamic symbols and beliefs. Foreign influence on Indonesian art forms was brought about by centuries of exposure to other cultures through trade. Immigrants from China, India, the Arab world and later Europe traveled to the archipelago in search of the unique spices grown in Indonesia. These traders settled and brought with them rich artistic traditions which influenced the development of local art.
HISTORY OF ISLAMIC ART
Islamic art encompasses the visual arts produced from the 7th century on wards by people who lived within the territory that was inhabited by or ruled by culturally Islamic populations. Islamic art is not at all restricted to religious art, but includes all the art of the rich and varied cultures of Islamic societies as well
