Kneeling, she rests her cheek on her hand in a study of loneliness. An abstracted body reveals an empty space where her heart should be, and it is only the strength of her will that keeps her body together. Beautifully sculpted of Balinese suar wood, this evocative work of art is by Eka.

Story behind the art :I was married to coconut-shell carver Putra Suteja from Mas Ubud, who was featured as a Novica artisan. We were blessed with a daughter and a son. Unfortunately, after 2 years of marriage, my husband passed away after suffering from lung cancer for almost a year. He left us when our little boy was just born. My heart was broken and I fell so deeply into sadness. I saw no future; everything was so blurry in my vision at that time.I never expected that I would be a single parent. I felt that life was so cruel, unfair and too tough for me, but life must go on. I had to take care both of my children while I worked as a nurse in a hospital; one of them was still just a baby. Children shouldn't know hard times and suffering.I decided to continue my husband's business with Novica. I also joined Novica under my own name for a wood carving collection; they are selling well. I'm so glad and proud that so many people in the world like my products; it has really happened because Novica has been helping me through its online marketing. Today, the income from Novica has increased by 75% compared to the income of my husband from Novica before. I believe that because I have been helped by God's hands and supported by all my friends, I can keep working hard so I can feed my children, pay their school fees and also save for their future. The income I get from Novica customers also keeps getting better and better; it's been a great help for us, and now we can slowly start to do home improvements too. Until now, I've been working as a nurse in a hospital while also keeping this business of my husband's growing.I love the tranquil environment during the night; it's the best time to evaluate myself, what I did today, and also the growth of the business. I really like wood sculpture, so now I have started to get involved myself in the production and also the design. I am inspired by the current trends and combine it with Balinese culture. The production itself is done by 3 men and 3 women; they are wood carvers who work with manual tools according their skills and talents. I want to build a better collection of wood carving at Novica, eliminate items that not sell well, and propose new items that have more potential and satisfy the customers. This way, I hope I can get better sales so I can support my children's' future life. I am Eka, and I was introduced to Novica by my husband Putra Suteja. Unfortunately he passed away in 2009 after a long illness, leaving me with a 3 year old daughter and a 10 day old son. Thanks to them I do not falter, and thanks to all of you for always supporting me.Being associated with Novica means I can feed my children - I will always do my best to provide a good future for them. Thanks Novica and thanks to you all, because you encourage me to continue developing new ideas and designs for the sculptures so they will be always liked.
