Details

In Southeast Asia it is said that when Buddha's mother was about to give birth, she dreamt a white elephant came to her offering a lotus, symbol of purity and knowledge. When Buddha is depicted riding an elephant, it is believed it will bring good luck and health. Putu Oka Mahendra transforms legend into a mesmerizing ceramic teapot featuring a rattan handle.
