Indonesia and Dutch colonial roots.

Our gallery is located in the Netherlands / Holland and we, the people of the Netherlands are known as the Dutch … Ok until now you probably knew all this. But our little country was famous for its maritime and colonial past. At school we learned to be proud of this history and to be honest, most Dutch people still are a bit. But nowadays we are becoming more and more aware of the dark side of this, or perhaps the other side, seen from the people of the former colony. Thinking about this gives us mixed feelings and forces us to be humble. Because of this past there are many people from Indonesia in our little country and many things have been brought by them and our ancestors. We will be sure to treat these items with the respect they deserve.
