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 how 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.

I have several pieces by this sculptor. That is why I am confident whether I purchase anything that he has done. His work is perfect and I get a lot of compliments. I will continue to purchase more pieces from him. He puts a lot of soul and energy into each piece. This is a celebratory piece. I bought this to celebrate the birth of my new grandchild. This would make an excellent gift for a new mother or grandparent. Something that could pass down from generation to generation. Don't forget to lightly oil it (I use regular unflavored olive oil!) once in a while. They last forever. Reasonably priced for such a high end product and shipped fast.Read More

Bought this for my grandmother and was surprised how light the statue is. It doesn't seem like a sturdy or valuable piece at all. I felt silly even giving it as a gift because of it's paper thin weight and lack of finishing. The edges are rough, the wood is splintered in places and the base seems too small for the figures. I worry it might topple over. I like the design though and it's unique. The artist's name is carved on the bottom which makes it feel more like a real piece of artwork rather than a generic repeat. I'm hoping once it's displayed it will look more official.Read More
