I am interested in beadwork from Borneo as well as the Peranakan in East Malaysia area. I have two examples to post of the former but none of the Peranakan. I am hoping others may know of it.

The old male hat (band?) has a beautiful small bead panel with two stylized (male?) animal forms (monkeys?) and other figure-ground designs. Maybe others can make them out? I think the hat is Iban but the iban did not do beadwork which is probably from the Kayan or Kenyah.

The second piece is a flat beadwork panel also of abstract forms in figure -ground and of small beads. Also probably made by the Kayan or Kenyah. I think it came from a "baby carrier".

Anyone with more information?

-John

I wanted to show a photo of a Bahau/Modang Dayak bead hat with a band similar to the one John has.

I thought that you might be interested in an article 'Beads in Time: Towards a Chronology of Nonya Beadwork' by Hwei-Fe'n Cheah which is in the latest Jul-Aug Arts of Asia magazine Vol 34 Number 4. If you can't get it locally you can order directly from the magazine via the web.
http://www.artsofasianet.com/back_issue ... 04_jul_aug

I only received my copy today so I have not had a chance to read the article but pages 65-77 are full of photos of Peranakan beadwork.

Quote:
'This article explores the evolution of nonya beadwork across time and space to show the richness and dynamism of the craft. I hope that it will offer insights into the way that a part of Peranakan heritage developed and encourage further discussion of a visually and historically fascinating topic.'

There are also some other articles which may be of interest to other members, Naga ornament, Chinese silk and a lovely photo on page 20 of Lao, Thai, Burma silver.

Thanks Pamela - I've decided to subscribe to the magazine because I am always trying to get some particular back issue. I subscribe to Tribalarts as I assume you do. The magazine American Indian Art (?) is popular for American Indian collectors naturally.
