A kindly face of golden leather skin, the golden grians of ripened grain provide an under light to his beautiful face.

The scarecrow at the left made from coarse woven fibre seems to be wearing pantaloons and a hat reminiscent of those worn by Dutch soldiers a century ago - perhaps the scariest thing its makers could think of. (The story of the Balinese resistance to Dutch colonization is an extraordinary one). This scarecrow was tied to the end of a long bamboo pole and in a stiff breeze twirled wildly about the field.
