Notes "This exhibition, accompanied by this beautiful catalogue, was born from the close collaboration and friendship between the National Republic of Timor-Leste and MAGNT, giving a new and enriching interational dimension to this effort. By the same token, the objects and other expressions of material culture that form part of the collection of the future National Museum of Timor-Leste represent more than the memory of activities lost in distant times: they are an integral part of the identity of the Timorese people, old and young, women and men, in our country and in the diaspora"--His Excellency Mr. Kay Rala Xanana Gusmao -- p. 11.
