Space Sculpture Inspired by Afruz Amighi’s My House, My Tomb
In this activity, you will create your own “space sculpture” out of found objects, light, and shadow.
Asian Art Museum Storyteller Miriam Mills tells the story about a gecko from Bali.
Note: This story was inspired by Go to Sleep, Gecko! by Margaret Read MacDonald (2006) and a Balinese tale in Folk Tales from Bali and Lombok by Margaret Muth Alibash (Jakarta: Penerbit Djambatan, 1990). The story also is retold by Balinese storyteller Made Taro in his Lagu-Lagu Permainan Traditional Bali (Denpasar:Upada Sastra, 1999). In Made Taro’s version, a woodpecker begins the tale and the chief is a lion, rather than a human. Illustrator, Geraldo Valèrio, made an artistic decision to depict the village head as an elephant.
