The publication shows not only the great variety and beauty of the cloths but also the many sources of inspiration carried across the Indian Ocean by sailors and merchants, priests and warriors. Drawn from the National Gallery of Australias famous Asian textiles collection, the silks, cottons, batiks, gold brocades, tie-dyes, and embroideries feature Ramayana epics, elephant and camel processions, trading ship and floral designs from Indian chintz.
