Story:

In the seventeenth century, the enlightened King Pandji Sakti ruled in Bali, Indonesia. He guided the people with compassion, dignity, humility, courage and devotion and united the other rulers of the land to be one.

It is he who has inspired this painting. As the lion watches over his land he is at peace within himself, even amongst the chaos.

A true king, he protects his people with his wisdom and compassion.
