Terrace Painting Description
The painting depicts the efforts made by farmers to cultivate an existing land for certain purposes. Terraces are used as land for conservative efforts. Conservative means are steps to restore the existence of the environment or maintain the existing ecosystem.
With terraces, farming activities become easier. This terrace is also widely used for agricultural land. Its location on the slopes of a mountain causes it to be rich in volcanic soil elements that contain minerals that can fertilize plants.
The purpose of terracing is to make the water flow less quickly, because in addition to passing through the derivatives, the water will be absorbed by plants. This can reduce the risk of landslides.
This terracing is used to reduce slope fraud so as to make it easier for farmers to move from one field to another.
And the use of terracing is mostly done in steep areas, this will make land use in flat places more flexible, such as making housing or industry.
This painting has its own charm for the audience. Because this painting gives the impression of beauty and coolness that is still very integrated with nature. In this painting, we not only enjoy the vast expanse of rice fields.
But also enjoy the beauty of the hills and shady trees around it. The vast expanse of terraced rice fields is beautifully framed among coconut trees that continue to sway with the wind.
