In order to preserve the knowledge about ancient Indonesian pusaka items for future generations, the Bugis Makassar Polo Bessi Club (TBMPC) will organize a special exhibition to celebrate this particular heirloom item as the glory of the nation. The theme of this exhibition is: ‘Pusaka in the Past, Present and Future’ (Pameran Pusaka Dulu, Kini dan Nanti). The exhibition will be held on 27–31 October 2013 at Benteng Fort Rotterdam in Makassar, Sulawesi, Indonesia.
The Bugis Makassar Polo Bessi Club is actively involved in sharing knowledge and spreading information on sacred metals (‘tosan aji’) in Indonesian society. In November 2011, TBMPC organized the ‘Pusaka Senjata Bugis’ (Buginese Heirloom Weapons) exhibition, which was held at Bentara Budaya in Jakarta. This event was held in conjunction with the book launch of ‘Pusaka Senjata Bugis’ by Dr. Ahmad Ubbe. A catalogue of the exhibition items was released as well. It is quite likely that, for the upcoming exhibition in October 2013, there will also be a catalogue printed for documentation purposes.
For more information, please contact Dr. Ahmad Ubbe via telephone (+62 (0)81 1855 153) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
