Story Behind the Art:
Nyoman Karsa learned woodcarving from his father and the senior artists of his village. 'I have had my own work shop since 1987,' he says. 'I usually carve sculptures from ebony, suar, crocodile, and hibiscus woods. Each wood has specific characteristics of color, durability, and aroma. Some of my pieces deal with traditional dances, the stories of Ramayana and Mahabharata, sports, animals, and abstract figures. When creating a sculpture, I first see it in my mind.'
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
