This original vintage travel poster promoting travels to Indonesia depicting two Pinisi sailboats at sea with dramatic clouds on the horizon. The term pinisi refers to the standing gaff-ketch sailing rig which evolved over the 19th and 20th centuries. 

Pinisi development was a combination of Indigenous and European influences.  Originally small craft of about 15 to 20 tons, the term now applies to modern timber motor-sailers of several hundred tons built in the Bugis and Makassan traditions.

UNESCO designated Pinisi boat-building art as Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity at the 12th Session of the Unique Cultural Heritage Committee on Dec 7, 2017.

In very good condition.
