Water of Life
Water, as we know it, is a very important part of life we cannot live without. Even a human’s body consists of 70% of water. It is a source of life itself for it helps us grow and heal. It is an ordinary blessing that we need to count on each and every day. It is a reminder of how weak humans are without it. It is a part God we get to taste for ourselves.
In Balinese tradition itself, holy water is often used in all ceremonial occasions as it symbolizes protection from evil spirits and other harms. The girl in the painting symbolizes a grateful human making a very useful, spiritual, and fulfilling blessing from the ordinary miracle of life that comes in a form of water.
