About this Piece
This large garden statue is 100% hand made from a single block of natural Indonesian river stone, the intricate carving depicting “Dewi Sri” - the Indonesian Rice Goddess. Dewi Sri is the Goddess of the earth and the Mother of the Javanese and Balinese people. She is worshipped as the Rice Mother and as the Rice Bride, brings the rain when the monsoon arrives, symbolised by the pouring vase.
Dewi Sri is considered to be the inspirer of Bali’s highly productive method of cooperative rice farming as well as Bali’s master landscaper, protecting and nurturing the rice padi.
This stone statue has been hand carved by highly skilled artisans in Indonesia where an array of religions and beliefs are respected and celebrated by single communities. The goddess Dewi Sri is widely venerated as the great benefactress of the people who protects them against hunger, even in the semi-Islamized regions.
Decorative stone plinth available separately (adding approximately 35cm to the overall height) +£815
