The Alor-Pantar Archipelago is still one of the most under-researched areas of Indonesia. However, in January 2009 I was able to collect data on anthropomorphic sculptures in the Tanjung Muna area of Pantar. The study used photographs of objects that had been purchased recently by European private art collectors in order to elicit responses regarding the local mythology. I was also able to interview local traders as well as the dealer who sold the sculptures, which allowed me to document information regarding their origin and former use, as well as the circumstances under which they had found their way on to the international art market. Traditional marriage rules as well as black magic played a central role. Furthermore, in the course of my research by chance I learned of a contemporary ancestor cult connected to the construction of a new clan house and of traditional (pre-Protestant) forms of healing.
