The significance of the 3 works chosen for Art From Us, Museum Guide #584

Welcome to the Art From Us, Museum Guide #584. Todays picks for Art From Us, Museum Guide belong to the Island Southeast Asia.

Island Southeast Asia

Island Southeast Asia, also known as Maritime Southeast Asia, or formerly the East Indies is a group of islands and archipelagos off the coast of Southeast Asia. The regions includes Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunein and Timor Leste. The traditional mode of travel between these islands is boat. This is owing to the fact that the ocean is not so deep in this region, while the forests on the land are too dense, thus making land travel very difficult.

We encourage you to travel through the region and discover its many cultural nuances, through the collection at Metropolitan Museum of Art’s.
