This duck has something to say--listen up! The sleek boot-clad bird is carved by hand from bamboo root and acacia wood by Javanese artisan Supriyanto. He gives the sculpture a clear finish to show off the rich grains of both woods.
Ducks play a vital role in the ecology of wet-rice agriculture in Java as in Bali. The ducks are herded into the fields well prior to harvest time to eat algae and insect pests, as well as fertilize the fields with their droppings. It is important to keep them away from ripening fields though, so that they do not eat the rice itself!
