Maybe you’ve only seen it in travel photos and websites or, even better, have travelled to the mystical island of Bali yourself. You’ll most certainly have seen the pervasive influence of Hinduism all over the island, from the morning rice offerings to the inhabitants’ traditional outfits, from the woodcarvings to the art works. Most of all you’d have noticed the statues of Dewi Sri, the Javanese goddess of rice and fertility. She’s hugely symbolic, and though depicted either in a prayer pose or standing up, comes to mean on thing: having dominion over rice and fertility, which also means wealth, as rice is a staple in both the diet and the economy. This standing statue is 60cm tall and made of stone and cement, it will be a spiritual piece to have in your garden or home. You can also wrap her in a scarf or sarong to add colour. Although on her own, she’s a mighty strong specimen.
