Peace Ring

This artwork entitled “Peace Ring” (2019) is a symbol of peace, inspired by the historical story of the war between the Limboto Kingdom and the Gorontalo Kingdom. The war ended with the ritual of the sacred oath “Janji Lo Uduluwo Lo Ulimo Lo Pohalaa” (promise of unity of two and five kingdoms) in 1673 which was marked by the sinking of two interlocking rings in Limboto Lake, as a symbol of peace between the Limboto Kingdom and the Gorontalo Kingdom.
