Inspired by the importance of dialogue in a society, Javanese artist Sri Hidayat paints this impressive surrealist composition. Framed against a yellow-grey sky, a life-sized wayang, or Indonesian shadow puppet, is depicted. It stands with one arm outstretched and its face in a curious expression, gazing down at metallic discs that seem to emerge from the roots of a tree. The artist imagines that the puppet is taking a pose like it is about to say something important.
