'I am Wayan Rendah of Bali. I started to learn to sculpt from my father at the age of eight. Balinese woodcarving touches me very deeply. I have learned a variety of arts in Bali, such as gamelan dance, but carving a piece of wood gives me an incomparable sensation.
'I studied with Wayan Purna. I wanted to be able to create the ideas I had in my head. As time went by, I was able to bring out my ideas by selecting different types of wood and concentrating on the themes that could satisfy my creative desires. Exploring the abstract world refreshes my mind in creating new carvings. The mind and inspiration are two amazing things that encourage me to create special works of art.'

It took some time to arrive, about 3 weeks, but the package was well packed. It is kind of disappointed when you compare the picture on the site for sale and the one I got, I am sure the original is beautiful and proportional. The color is a bit too dark, and the wood is kind of light, not heavy at all.Read More
This statue arrived broken at the arm( all the way through). I was going to return it for another one, but there were no more in stock. I decided to glue the arm, sand it down, and then stained it. It was a hassle, but didn't want to go through the hassle of repackaging it and taking it UPS. As neat as is, the detailing is not nearly as nice as the one in the picture. I am disappointed. It is quite large--so be sure you check the dimensions and see whether it will fit wherever you plan to put it. The color was also a lot darker than the picture... not a big deal for me, though.Read More
What a nice artistic piece! It's very unique and makes a great focal point; it gets a lot of attention as I have it placed where you can't miss it when walking into the room. The craftsmanship is excellent, it's almost hard to believe it was carved by hand. It 's bigger than I thought it would be but that's not a problem. It's not as shiny as the photo shows, but I realize it's wood/handmade and colors, etc. can vary. Packaging was great and it came with an authenticity card. I'd definitely recommend!Read More

Beautiful piece. My husband, as a woodworker, is fascinated by the craftsmanship. I love the idea of supporting a fair trade artisan and overstock made it easy.Read More
Questions & Answers
Thank you for contacting us spunday7s. There is no magnet; it is simply carved in such a way that the figure's arm supports the upper part of the body. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
Just wondering what the height of the sculpture is? Thanks.
