There is a manuscript, the ‘Tantu Pagelaran,’ that explains the mythical origins of the Indonesian island, Java where we find ourselves - and legend has the adventure as follows: Lord Shiva orders gods Brahma and Vishnu to fill this island with mere humans, but as Java is floating freely in the ocean, tumbling and shaking, they need to nail it down, so they bring a part of the mountain Mahameru from India. But, it tilts the island and part of it starts to break off, creating the iconic volcanoes - but Shiva loves this enchantment, where the realm of mortals connects with svarga (the realm of gods), so that he moves right in. Made from reclaimed enormous roots from abandoned teak forests in little villages on the island, these curves and edges are nature’s own creations.
Use and Care: Wipe clean with a damp cloth only. Time will add fissures and weather the color.
