Carrying an offering of peace, a group of men tread somberly over the ground in this Javanese painting. Yuli Kodo paints in a realist style, diligently capturing every minute detail of the workers' clothes, framed against an overcast sky. The men wear striking red shirts and hats with blue batik sarongs. Within the large vessel, called a gunungan, Earth's treasures are gathered, given by the Mataram kingdom of Yogyakarta to symbolize fertility.
