Malaysia’s cultural heritage is as varied as it is vast. It may be the reason why no single icon adequately represents the nation. It may also be because her people have embraced each other’s culture in all its forms so wholeheartedly that distinctions have blurred.
Still, symbols must be chosen. The Heritage collection draws from an embarrassment of riches, from the artistic expressions of her original peoples, to the assimilated influences of centuries of migration, trade and interaction with a wider world.
