Kain Sarong men’s skirt cloth, Bugis people, South Sulawesi, early to mid-20th century, weft ikat patterning on silk, aniline dyes, flat textile sewn into a tube (can be opened up).
One wonders if the weaver knew how modern this skirt cloth would look. Pow. The image at left shows an 18th century depiction of a Bugis couple, perhaps inaccurately, as it would have been drawn from written descriptions only. The Bugis are famed as Indonesia’s finest seafarers and traders, and are infamous (historically) as pirates. The term “bogey man” is derived from the word Bugis, and reflects the general attitude toward the Bugis on the part of travellers in pre-modern Indonesia: fear. (MT)
