Description:
The Southern Cross, called lintang layang-layang (The Kite) in Balinese, has guided trevelers in the Southern Hemisphere for centuries. It hovers in a mysterious, monochromatic tropical night sky. The calm mood is romantic, with the half moon illuminating streaks of clouds. In the distance warm yellow light pours through the door of hut, its reflection elongated by flooded ricefields. This draws attention to who or what is waiting for the traveler, a lonely silhouetted figure standing amidst the shadows of coconut and Banana Trees.

  Title : Offering
  Artist : Chang Fee-Ming
  Media : Watercolor on paper
  Size : 56 x 76 cm
  Year : 1993
Description:
The Balinese create beautiful ceremonial abjects from young coconut leaves which are trimmed and held together with bamboo pins. Sunlight shines on some canang, a refined Balinese world for the betel chew, which are offering trays containing flowers, shreded leaves, and betel chow. They are placed on a banana leaf base upon an open stone shrine. Rice grains on a small leaf square, jotan or saiban, are offered daily to the invisible forces of the cosmos before people are allowed to eat. The rich variety of textures, incredibly fine details, and super realism have more soul than could be shown in a photograph.
