Item description for Framing Indonesian Realities: Essays in Symbolic Anthropology in Honour of Reimar Schefold by Peter J. M. Nas, Gerard A. Persoon & Rivke Jaffe...

Ritual language, wild and domestic animals, and objects of material culture like houses, palaces, and works of art, are often loaded with symbolic meaning. "Reading the landscape," or giving meaning to the natural environment, is a cultural act as well, and one must discover what mountains, coastlines, and islands mean to different groups of people. In this book, written on the occasion of Professor Reimar Schefold's retirement from the Department of Cultural Anthropology at Leiden University, collegues and former students from the Netherlands and abroad demonstrate the variety and wealth of the field of symbolic anthropology.

The regional focus of the book is Indonesia. The studies presented range from small island communities in western, northern, and eastern Indonesia to urban settlements in Java and Sumatra. All the contributions are in some way related to Reimar Schefold's work over the past thirty-five years, including extensive studies on material culture, rituals, and the use of symbols in the expression of ethnicity among the various cultural groups of Indonesia.
