Temple lovers: Bol Brutu members paint and draw pictures of Candi Ijo.Members of Gerombolan Pemburu Batu (Bol Brutu) or the Stone Hunters Group, explorers of archeological relics and historical sites, reached Candi Ijo in Prambanan, 25 kilometers east of Yogyakarta, on one bright Sunday morning.
Perched on a hill at an altitude of 350 meters, Candi Ijo is the highest temple in the region, and is comprised of a main temple and three perwara (ancillary) buildings.
In the temple yard, over a dozen “stone hunters” had gathered and were chatting. Some began to study the structures believed to date back to the ninth century AD.
Putu Sutawijaya, a painter from Yogyakarta, took a position north of the temple. He adeptly drew some strokes on a large canvas, painting Candi Ijo and its lingga-yoni (symbol of fertility), known as the largest in Indonesia.
