Florina H. Capistrano-Baker, former director, Ayala Museum (Philippines)

Capistrano-Baker examines different styles of rendering the human figure in Polynesia, Melanesia, and Indonesia with special reference to 19th- and 20th-century examples from Hawaii, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Sumatra, Borneo, and Northern Luzon. Distinguishing features and their symbolic associations are discussed, along with typical gestures and postures such as the intriguing squatting figures prevalent in Indonesian village traditions.
