Comentario(s)

Painted in 1968 entitled to “Kerokan dan Metani” or in English “Scrapping Back and Catching Flea”, the present iconic painting was executed by Hendra Gunawan when the artist was incarcerated in prison “Kebun Waru” Bandung, West Java for three years because of a political conflict. The artist expresses the life on a neighboring family in scrapping back and looking for hair lice, a daily ritual of familiarity usually performed by the rural communities in his country. This unique activity has been a past tradition from his country’s ancestors since century ago.
