Documenting on Palm Leaves – Interview with Kadek Ardita, Bali

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Interview with I Kadek Ardita, a Balinese artist who carries on the beautiful handicraft of drawing and writing on dried palm leaves. This has been practised for thousands of years, long before paper was developed. Today only a few people on the island of Bali have inherited this craftsmanship and use it to create storyboards on the Ramayana, calendars or illustrations of deities, animals and horoscopes. This is the 22nd episode of my monthly podcast series LIFE Voices with inspiring interviews from around the world. Length: 8:23 min.
