Nyoman Witarsa presents this fascinating work, rendered in palm leaf panels framed by bamboo rods. In the past, when there was no paper available, the Balinese wrote and drew on palm leaves. This ancient tradition finds beautiful expression in Witarsa's art, exemplified here by a traditional calendar. Intricate design reveals those days of the year most suitable for performing certain activities, communicating the influence of each day upon the whole. The Balinese astrological system resembles the Western calendar in that the year is divided into 12 months, however each month comprises 35 days. Adorned with various gods, this piece will surely captivate any décor.
