Working with oils in an expressionist style, Javanese artist Tales Suparman paints a composition that celebrates the dancing traditions of Indonesia. Holding a horse puppet and whip, a jatilan dancer kneels dramatically. Jatilan dances take on horse-like characteristics, as the music and movement begins slowly, building into a sort of epic gallop. Says the artist, "This scene depicts part of the jatilan dance where the dancer is possessed and starts to dance out of the dancer's control."
