Holy water for the ricefieldsBatuan - Dated 1936 to 1938
Scenes of the cycle of rice growing, including burning the harvested field, keeping buffalo in fallow fields, ploughing and flooding the fields. A key part of this narrative is the recurring figure of a pamangku (temple priest) who is sprinkling holy water on the field, illustrating the link between agriculture and religion. This work is only known through illustration in an article, and has been lost.
