Details

Two wary monkeys stand guard over books. Each grasps a jar of holy water with long simian fingers, ready to sprinkle holy water to aid mankind. Sculpted of suar wood, these bookends by Wayan Rendah depict beloved creatures in Balinese society. Honored for their role in saving Sita in the Ramayana, they are welcomed in temples even though they sometimes disrupt ceremonies with their antics.
