Story Behind the Art: Born on February 21st, 1978 in Gianyar, Made Wirata is a carver of natural talent. Gianyar is renowned producing famous Balinese artist and artisans, and Wirata's family has been dedicated to this art for generations. Wirata first learned to carve from his father, who specialized in a particular style of carving locally known as sri bunga as well as keris, a traditional dagger. When he finished elementary school, he apprenticed with his uncle, who taught him to carve traditional images. In 1993, his interest in art lead him to learn from a cousin about the carving of modern statuettes. Wirata began to sell his work in order to sustain his studies and now several galleries in Bali are collecting his creations.

After seeing this in my neighbor's house, I decided to buy one for a friend as a 5th anniversary gift since the element that represents a 5th wedding anniversary is wood. She loved it and said it was the prettiest anniversary gift she received.
While I'm sure this is a lovely product, I really couldn't say for sure at this point, as I have not received it yet. This is very frustrating. I ordered the product May 1, with an estimated shipping date of May 8. It is now May 13, and I have heard NOTHING about whether the item has even shipped, and when I check my account, it is still listed as "Processing." I was supposed to have this as a wedding gift for a friend this past weekend. Needless to say, that did NOT work out, which means I will be shipping it to my friend myself once (or IF) I actually receive the item. I'm not sure I will go this route again -- I've never ordered something only to have it still processing two weeks later.

I gave this beautiful stauette as a wedding gift. It is very original and unique. I'm sure they received no duplicates! It was nice to support and Indonesian artisian. Nice accent piece. I plan to buy another one for my parents 50th anniversary.
