KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 2 — The public now has the opportunity to see the personal keris collection of the Sultan of Selangor up-close and for themselves, via the inaugural ‘Pameran Keris: Kuasa dan Jati Diri‘ exhibition which begins today.

Up to 59 keris belonging to Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah Alhaj will be on display, a total of 94 keris at the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia (IAMM) at Jalan Lembah in Tasik Perdana.

His Royal Highness officiated the international-level exhibition yesterday, accompanied by Her Royal Highness the Tengku Permaisuri of Selangor Tengku Permaisuri Norashikin, and His Highness the Raja Muda Selangor Tengku Amir Shah.

The exhibition’s curator Hariz Ahmad Kamal said the endeavour is a collaboration between Yayasan Raja Muda Selangor (YRMS) and IAMM.

“This is to highlight the keris as a prominent symbol in Malay culture, and we want to document and preserve this heritage.

“The exhibition will present a new point of view on the keris, the Malay world, and its connection with the Malay Sultanate,” he told SelangorKini.

Pameran Keris: Kuasa dan Jati Diri will run until March 13 next year.
