Roxanna Brown noted in “The History of Ceramic Finds in Sulawesi” (SEACS Transactions pamphlet No. 5, 1974), that the amount of ceramics found in Sulawesi is staggering and suggests they might have come via wide roaming inter-island traders responding to local interest. Without contemporaneous vernacular records, we can only speculate on how the peoples of Sulawesi came to value these wares for such a long time. I hazard the guess that there was a communal passion for collecting them.
