Lombok boasts an indigenous Sasak culture whose rich tradition has been influenced by its Balinese neighbors and by Buginese and Makassars who settled in the eastern part of Lombok in the 17th century. The Bali influence is seen in the double spiral amulets called ani-ani. But they also retained some archaic forms and styles as seen in the Sasak bangles made from brass or pure gold. Sumbawa manufactured necklaces, armbands, rings, belts and gold hair ornaments with styles and motifs reminiscent of the Makassarese. Small jewelry items like rings and fine chains were customarily stored in finely carved wooden boxes traditional containers carved with kala (giant head) motifs. Sumba has stark and powerful jewelry that harks back to its Austronesian roots. They fashioned giant gold pectorals (maranga) weighing 1.5 kilo or more. The maranga dates from the 4th-6th CE, migrated from eastern Java and is still a popular ceremonial ornament. It has undergone some style changes but size-wise, the biggest ones are found in Sumba. In Eastern Sumba the imagery became very complex and the mamuli, those ubiquitous oval shapes that are found all over Indonesia, took on a very ornate, baroque style. Other sacred gold ornaments are lamba, the hornshaped forehead crowns worn by Marapu priests. This type of jewelry is believed to possess powerful magic and their use is strictly regulated by taboos. Sumba also produced huge arm and legbands made of bronze or ivory, both etched with geometric images and brass and turtle shell ceremonial combs worn by women with finely wrought motifs usually depicting humans and animals. traditional containers
