520    "Anthropologists Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson were 
       pioneers in using visual anthropological techniques to 
       study the aesthetics of bodily motion in Bali. What is 
       less well known is that they also collected textiles, 
       paintings, puppets, and carvings, most of which are 
       collected at the American Museum of Natural History in New
       York. This book and its accompanying exhibit explore the 
       Mead-Bateson textiles as forms of power. Some textiles in 
       the exhibit are valued for their magical powers derived 
       from techniques of fabrication and contexts of use; other 
       cloths are important for the stories that surround them as
       records of a period in Balinese history. An added layer of
       meaning is introduced as these fabrics are curated and 
       exhibited in Western countries. This book reveals how the 
       "power" of Balinese textiles depends upon the efficacies 
       attributed to these objects as they journey from 
       fabrication and ritual use in their native context to 
       curation and display in the West"--|cProvided by publisher
