Exhibition : Seni Asli, Matic KL


I went here unplanned and found a great exhibition currently held : Seni Asli - An Orang Asli Contemporary Art Exhibition and Sales, at MaTiC Kuala Lumpur. 


There were a lot of beautiful wood-carved sculpture and masks, several art sketches, a lot of photographs and the Mah Meri's crafts. Nothing as I imagined Orang Asli's product would be, because the design was a bit modernized and influenced by several other subjects : gargoyles, Chinese dragons, etc. I personally love the combination.


Too bad there weren't any visitors much. Except for me and another two foreigners that only spent 3 minutes in the gallery.

These wooden sculptures were made by the Meh Meri people to house the spirit :

Moyang Pacat

Moyang Puting Beliong

Moyang Katak

Moyang Harimau Berantai
