Holy water for the ricefields

I Nyoman Reneh (1910–1976)

Date painted:1936 +/- years

Scenes of the cycle of rice growing, including burning the harvested field, keeping buffalo in fallow fields, ploughing and flooding the fields. A key part of this narrative is the recurring figure of a pamangku (temple priest) who is sprinkling holy water on the field. This work is only known through illustration in an article, and has been lost.
