The philosophy behind the anniversary was based on the number of 8 that symbolized infinity. To Museum Rudana, the number represents partnership in the eternal quest for perfection in art creation and the transfer of energy through the works of art with purpose beyond the visual values. The anniversary epitomized the rebirth of Museum Rudana’s vision to relentlessly seek, preserve and develop culture for mankind in peace.

Museum Rudana prepared for the big occasion.

 The idea of honoring the three maestros was conceived by Nyoman Rudana, founder of Museum Rudana in Ubud, Bali. The delicate process required intense observation, analysis by international  ( Bali based ) art curators and delicate consideration from the Museum. This event marks the commitment of Museum Rudana in its role to promote the art of Indonesia, especially of Bali and to channel this tremendous creativity of our fine and well established artists to art scenes around the globe

In the both oriental and occidental legends, fables and literary works, arrows signified victory of the good over the bad or love and passion over hatred. The proof of Rama’s eternal devotion to his wife Sinta in Ramayana epic or Cupido’s arrow  of love shooting into heart in western mythology, as well as Kahlil Gibran’s freedom in the Prophet would show best the passion of humanity and the liberation of creativity which constantly appearing in our artists’ works during the decades of their creative life. 

The name Ksatria is derived from a Sanskrit word meaning knight or, in linguistic sense, a quality of gallantry or nobleness.

Therefore, the award presentation could be seen as noblelizing our Knights of The Art, recognizing special individuals who have devoted their minds, passion, soul and life to conceive, develop and envision their culture within this vast area of humanity.
