One of Indonesia’s celebrated artists, Hasim is renowned for his figurative and landscape paintings of native Indonesia. Illustrated here is a painting of a Balinese lady preparing the daily profusion of sacred offerings to the gods and the demons. It is believed in the Hindu religion that these offerings provide good karma to those involved in their preparation which in itself is an element of worship.
