Mother is a vocabulary that is very familiar with our lives. Biologically, mothers are people who give birth, nurture and raise us. Inner bond between mother and child is a necessity that does not fade with time.
Mothers can also be interpreted as a center, bond, or origin. At a broader level, the earth (land and water) is often called the "motherland" in which each of its inhabitants is interconnected in one cosmological unit.
This cross-generation exhibition of Batuan Village artists works this time is considered to be a grand display of 76 works by artists. There are 52 paintings and 24 masks. Not only displaying the work of the latest generation, but also the work of previous generations. The oldest generation is Ida Bagus Made Widja (1912-1992), Ida Bagus Made Togog (1913-1989), Nyoman Ngendon (1920-1947), I Made Djata (1920-2001). While the youngest generation is I Wayan Aris Sarmanta (1995). As curator namely I Wayan ‘Jengki’ Sunarta.
This time the Batuan painting and mask exhibition is a form of respect for "land, water, and mother".

This village has given birth to many capable artists in various fields of art, such as painting, sculpture, dance, mask. For the traditional style of painting Batuan itself has been recognized by the government of the Republic of Indonesia as one of the Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2018.
