In thirty years of travel and passionate research, René van der Star has collected and catalogued with philosophical rigor an exceptional collection of silver jewellery from the most remote villages of China, Laos, Thailand, Vietnam, and Tibet. The pieces in the Van der Star collection, which are presented in this volume with a selection of extraordinary ethnic fabrics, are unique for their beautiful shapes and exquisite craftsmanship. The focus on the ethnographic context in which these objects were produced gives the collection special documentary value, brought to light by the essays of the authors who contributed to this publication. Through a punctual analysis of the uses, customs, and rituals of various ethnics minorities, the earrings, necklaces, rings and objects produced by master silversmiths. The captions offer additional insight, describing the specific function of each object and providing detailed information about the composition of the metals and area of origin.
