Story Behind the Art:
'I am Wayan Rendah. I started to learn to sculpt at the age of eight, learning from my father how to carve traditional statues from wood. Balinese woodcarving touches me very deeply. I have learned a variety of arts in Bali, but carving a piece of wood gives me an incomparable sensation. At first, I sold my statues to the sellers in the art market and at small shops. After I finished school, I studied with Wayan Purna so as to have a stronger foundation to build upon, because I wanted to be able to create the ideas I had in my head. But to do this I needed more experience. 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 piece looks very nice in person. it looks like the description and pictures online, and it measures the same size. it is fairly light, maybe lighter than you might expect a wood piece to be. that's not bad, just an observation
This was a valentines gift for my wife who really enjoys it. We liked the fact that it was inscribed with the carvers name so we were able to look him up online. It makes it feel a little more personal somehow.
