This handsome piece of art is handmade from rosewood and aluminum in Madagascar. It depicts a rice farmer going into his fields to care for them so he will provide food for his family and his community. With a jaunty step, he looks forward to the upcoming rice harvest, knowing he has cared for both the land and his family responsibly. Growing rice is hard work, but he takes pride in the knowledge that when the rice is harvested, his family will have food for another year. He may sell or trade some of his extra rice to ensure his family has other important items.
This unique and lovely piece would look beautiful in any home. It pays homage to the farmer, whose work day after day provides food for the world. It is a delightful reminder who works tirelessly to bring food not only to his table, but to the whole world. He is a gentle and positive reminder where our food comes from and who benefits from the fruits of his labor.
