Probably there is no country more diverse than Indonesia. The vast number of islands, each with its language and way of life give the nation, together with its position amidst important trade routes, a unique blend of style and culture. Starting with the polytheistic Hinduist belief in the early ages, to the beauty of Islam and the blend with Western culture, due to the Dutch colonization. Indonesia gives the world the most beautiful sculptures, carvings and paintings. Artefacts from this country are truly to be amazed  by.
