MulticulturalNT December 2008 Mr Tom Pauling, as patron of the forthcoming exhibition, said he valued the opportunity to see these items for the first time. I look forward to seeing these important cultural objects as they arrive, and think the Territory is very privileged to host the first ever international exhibition of Timor-Leste artefacts, Mr Pauling said. This is a truly collaborative exhibition, which has grown out of a strong working relationship between MAGNT and its colleagues in Timor-Lestes Directorate of Culture, and will serve to bring attention to the need for long-term care and preservation of Timor-Lestes vulnerable cultural heritage. Ai bahat nai bei, crocodile carving, gravura de crocodilo Lolo, gusi, water pot, recipiente para gua The Husie Bei Ala Timor Sira Nia Liman From the Hands of Our Ancestors exhibition will open at MAGNT from November 2008 until July 2009.
