Working hands, moving hands…

In the Western world we are using machines to manufacture our products.  For many people of Bali and Lombok  working with their hands is very normal, no machines are being used.  When you travel on the islands of Bali and Lombok you will see many workplaces without  big working machines, the people are making beautiful products by hand. In Lombok I saw a group of housewives sitting in the bale (gazebo),  braiding offer baskets. It looks very relaxing, talking  and working with each other and the children playing around them.

In Bali you will see next to the working hands also moving hands.  On the beach, musicians playing on their instruments or the priest who blesses the bride and groom.

Hands… very important instruments, for working, for playing, for blessings, for touching….
