EDITORS COMMENTS
This hand-colored woodcut print takes us back in time to the native village of Warus-Warus, located on the picturesque island of Ceram in the Moluccas, also known as the Spice Islands. The illustration, dating back to the 19th century, beautifully depicts a traditional scene that showcases both the natural beauty and cultural heritage of this historic place. The image transports us to a tropical paradise where houses with thatched roofs stand tall on stilts along the shore. These dwellings serve as homes for the indigenous people who have called this island their own for generations. A sea canoe gracefully glides across crystal-clear waters, reflecting its vibrant colors against an azure backdrop. As we gaze at this vintage artwork, we are reminded of Indonesia's rich history and its deep connection to maritime trade routes during ancient times. The Moluccas were renowned for their valuable spices such as cloves and nutmeg, which attracted traders from all corners of Asia and Europe. This print not only captures a moment frozen in time but also serves as a testament to human resilience and adaptability in harmony with nature's elements. It is an invitation to explore our past through artistry while appreciating the wonders of our world's diverse cultures and landscapes.
