Product Information


A blossoming lotus flower opens its exotic petal to reveal the presence of a young Buddha imparting his blessing. Buddha's presence is infinitely detailed and so is the flower that serves as a throne of divinity. Wayan Rendah hand-carves this spectacular statuette from ebony, its lustrous dark wood conferring an appearance of antiquity to this piece.

The scriptures tell of a young Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha) - it was prophesized he was set to become the greatest teacher of the world. When he became 29 years of age he left his wealthy family in pursuit of the truth and after six years he experienced the religious epiphanies that would become the basis of Buddhism: that a wholesome existence guided by proper understanding, contemplation, and concentration releases one from the painful cycle of life and death.

Due to the natural origin of the material and the handcrafted process involved, please expect the possibility of a slight difference in the wood's grain as well as dimensions.

Story behind the art :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 even at a young age I knew that what I wanted was 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. Wood has certain special characteristics that I would sacrifice if I worked with another medium like stone, which is not easily broken and produces very specific effects. Since joining Novica, I have been able to continue to express my ideas and to support my family, and my work can be seen outside Bali. I am very grateful for this, because this is my strongest desire: to be able to create and share the ideas I have and support my family.Times were so hard before I joined Novica. I couldn't afford to pay the hospital for my wife giving birth to our daughter. I had to give up my motorbike, the only thing we had left, to pay the hospital and take my wife and daughter back home. God answered my prayer, and here I am now living happily with my wife, a daughter, and a son. Regular income from Novica means so much to the life of my family, and the lives of other carvers in our village - I am now working with 20 carvers! We started with nothing. My place is full of statues we're working on for Novica customers. Two or three times per week I visit Novica to deliver our finished sculptures, and to get paid for what has sold. It feels as though the Novica office is my own office, yet I don't have to pay for Novica, or Novica's employees, or any packaging or shipping expenses. I just get 24 hours of promotion every day, internationally. This is funny story that once happened to me. I had finished a statue and a tourist wanted to buy it, but after close inspection I noticed one finger was missing from its hand. I was mortified; I gave back the money for it and said I was sorry but that the statue was not for sale. I still have it as a reminder."
