Story:

There are many magical things in the East. A friend of mine was given a precious stone from the East of Java, which is said to contain a High Priestess who lives in the stone.

I have seen this stone and find it easy to imagine her living there.

To express what I saw I painted her on silk. Her eyes are so alive and remind me of the woman who now minds the stone.
