The Culture

East Timor is rich in arts and crafts of all kinds including the traditional weaving of cloth know as Tais. Contemporary arts are on display at the Arte Moris Cultural Centre in Dili. Traditional East Timorese houses have many features from animist belief. In traditional Timorese society, the shape and structure of a building represents things like strength and balance and pays homage to nature, the environment, animals and to the ancestors, all of which are essential to life itself.
