The life of a Balinese temple : artistry, imagination, and history in a peasant village by Hildred Geertz( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Should a temple be seen as a work of art, its carvers as artists, its worshipers as art critics and patrons? What is a temple (and its art) to the people who make and use it? Noted anthropologist Hildred Geertz attempts to answer these and other questions in this look at transformations in material culture and social relations over time in a village temple in Bali. Throughout, Geertz offers insightful glimpses into what the statues, structures, and designs of Pura Desa Batuan convey to those who worship there, deepening our understanding of how a village community evaluates workmanship and imagery." "Illustrated with photographs, drawings, and maps, The Life of a Balinese Temple is a record of a complex communal achievement. Based on continued on-site study over a twenty-year period, it is a contribution to Bali studies and the anthropology of art that will also find an appreciative audience among students of religion, art historians, and those interested in material culture."--BOOK JACKET

Tales from a charmed life : a Balinese painter reminisces by Hildred Geertz( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Togog shares stories of his early life, relating dilemmas from his childhood and youth. Growing up in the wake of Dutch colonization, he came into contactwith new languages, customs, and economic opportunities that presented him with puzzling and poignant experiences. He tells of his association with Spies and Bonnet and later Mead and Bateson and his role in the creation of a genre of painting for which Bali is now famous. This is a view of Bali from the inside - a vivid, highly personal look at a world where spirits, ancestors, and sorcerors have the power to intervene in one's life. According to Togog, who narrowly escaped death numerous times, his was indeed a "charmed life.""

Javanese OE05( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Javanese Collection features documents, all of them in English, covering a variety of cultural and socioeconomic information. Most of the documents deal with the post 1949 period in which the Javanese, as citizens of the newly founded Indonesian Republic, witnessed political violence and rapid economic transformation. The place focus is central Java where a group of scholars, sponsored by Massachusetts Institute of Technology, conducted ethnographic research in early 1950s. The outputs of this study included the works of the scholarly couple Hildred and Clifford Geertz, and several other researchers. Major themes covered include kinship and family system, religion and culture change, social organization and village life, marketing behavior of peasants. Together, these studies provide a comprehensive account of Javanese culture and society as observed in the 1950s-1970s. These earlier studies are supplemented by other documents in the collection which, based on information from 1980s to mid-2000s, examine more specific themes. Coverage includes family life, aspects of culture including concepts of self, shame, place, gender and power. Other documents in the collection include broad ethnographic descriptions of Javanese culture by an Indonesian anthropologist
