Kadek Ardita is 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.
