Story:

A friend of mine was sharing with me a dream that he had had when he was a boy. The dream was very similar to the tale of the Sword and the stone.

This story inspired me to paint this artwork, bringing in the influence I have from the Indonesian culture. In the respect that the sword, or kris, is like a woman. I choose to paint the woman of the sword.
