Depicted as a traditional Indonesian shadow puppet, a king without a crown is depicted alongside a regal chair against a background of stylized trees and clouds in hues of red and orange. Javanese artist Harman paints this surrealist composition that draws influence from Indonesian folk art. Says the artist, "A king without a crown is a picture of a great leader with a heart to serve his people. A king who lives like ordinary people as if he is not the king and puts aside all glamorous things."
