Story:

Pura Pandji, simply means Pandji Temple. This temple is in the north of Bali and belongs to the Pandji family (the Royal clan from northern Bali). It is the family temple. It is custom in Bali to have a temple which represents a lineage, a place for the family to pay their respects to their ancestors.

I was asked by the Priest of this temple to paint it. I worked from a photograph I took. And spent 6 weeks slowly painting.

My main focus whilst painting Pura Pandji was to try and capture the feeling I have there. It was an intense experience.

Status:

Private collection, Bali.
