With lightened hearts, a group of workers from Mataram, Yogyakarta, are depicted in this Javanese painting. Yuli Kodo paints in a realist style, diligently capturing every minute detail of the workers' faces beneath an overcast sky, framed against a church steeple. The men wear white uniforms with beautiful batik sarongs, a uniform that symbolizes "the cleanliness of one's heart and mind in every task without unwanted intentions."
