A WEEK FOR OUR RIVERS : PART 3

ART WORKs FROM RIVER SIDE
We can find two art works that made from wooden board, bamboo and aren fruits (Arenga pinnata).
Aren is a kind of palm that grown naturally on the river side.
Bamboo and aren are main plants that grow and support river ecosystem.


The first one is a 'mountain' that made from wooden boxes and aren fruits.
And there are some 'peoples' that work on that mountain.
The people made of dried grass.
I'm not sure what it means, I'm not an art curator...


I'm so sorry, I don't have any night shots.
The night situation is more dramatic.
The boxes that filled by aren fruits is also filled by lamps too.
The lighting effect is awesome.


The second art work is the bamboo wall with hanged aren fruits (Arenga pinnata).


There some holes there, these holes became  great frame for the visitor to take some pictures.


Simple lighting becomes a dramatic effect in the night.


There are four wooden boxes that full of aren fruits under the hanged aren fruits.
Just three kind of material...


Above the wall, there's a simple sentence that written on the Javanese script 'Ambanyu mili' means flows like as water.


Maybe, the bunches of the hanged aren fruit describe the water's flow.
And the boxes are 'ponds' that 'load the water'


These are the aren fruits closer...


Again, I'm not sure what it means.
Whatever it mean,  I'm really interested to this wall.
So beautiful...
