Mr. Riceman – the legend of how it began. In the early nineties there was a craze that lasted around 10 years. It began in the Caribbean and on the roads of travellers all over the world.
The art of rice writing is ancient and practised by many over the millennia. Some say it began in Anatolia with the Sufis. Others say it began in India with saddhus or Holy men.
There are also stories of it being practised by Shaolin monks and Zen masters in China and Japan where rice is the staple food of billions. Mr. Riceman learned this art in 1994. He locked himself in a hotel room on Burghersdorp for 3 days and nights with a few kilos of rice.
His aim was to write the Lords prayer which had 374 letters on a single grain of rice. After three days he managed to write it in 2 grains of rice and gave up. But from that moment on he continued to write names on rice and preserving them in small containers or mini bottles.
This passion gave him the means to travel all over the world. Today he still writes on rice and has taught many others to do so.
