I purchased the fighting tigers chess set. It just came today - and it is absolutely lovely! The carving is extremely well done and both the board and the chessmen are quite beautiful. It is a wonderful piece! And it was packed so very carefully.

I just received the Mermaid Marriage, backgammon game. The packaging was the best I've ever seen. There are no words to describe the artistry of this piece. It is absolutely beautiful. The detail is exquisite. I would recommend this to anyone. Mr. Sandi is one talented man!!

Dear Ketut Sandi, it was such a pleasure to meet you and your lovely wife. I will always treasure our day together - the photos of you two smiling and laughing together serve as wonderful keepsakes of an unforgettable time! I continue to purchase your exquisite chess sets as house-warming gifts for friends...what more beautiful and interactive art could exist? ;) Best wishes, Catherine
Until now, I've admired Mr. Sandi's beautiful carving only on-line. Finally I dared to buy a wood relief panel of distant volcanoes viewed through an hibiscus. When the panel arrived today, I was curious, of course, if it would be as spectacular as the on-line picture indicated. Yes, it most certainly is. It is exquisite. My wife and son shared my delight. What a divinely inspired power of vision and portrayal, you have, Mr. Sandi. We thank you, from the heart, for "Mountain Hibiscus."

I have just received my Rama chess set and it is absolutely GORGEOUS! The details are amazing and the woods are great. The packaging was first-grade and it arrived in perfect shape. I will be back for more and so will my friends! Thank you!!! Sylvain in Canada
Today I received my "Paradise" jewelry box. I can't believe how lovely it is; it's even more beautiful than the photograph. Ketut Sandi is a talented artist, and I highly recommend his work to anyone contemplating a purchase.
I recently purchased the Wood relief panel, 'Giraffes in the Forest' It arrived very quickly and was packed with great care to avoid damage during transit. The item itself is absolutely delightful and reflects the skills of a very talented artist. Many thanks
We purchased the wood chess set, 'Anantaboga Dragon,' as a gift for a very special friend. We trusted that it would look as beautiful in person as it did on the website. And our trust was rewarded. The detail work was superb, the wood was beautiful and the piece was exactly as described and portrayed. Thank you so much for allowing us to express our friendship with such beauty and artistry.
Dear Ketut Sandi, Yesterday I received the chess set I had ordered as a present for my sister. The artistry and the craftsmanship is outstanding. Both my sister and I are amazed at the fine detail work that went into creating this set -- intricately carved pieces are so delicately featured and contain so much character. The chess board itself is a masterpiece of carefully fitted pieces, smoothed and finished to perfection. It far exceeded our expectations! You also packaged everything beautifully and with great care. We thank you, and thank you again. Warmest regards, Rena D.

I purchased Lion's Head a while back and for some reason had never posted a review. It is a beautiful, finely carved wooden box that is perfect for storing sacred, precious items. Not only that, but the box is a true work of art. Its craftmanship is superb, and the quality of the wood is incredible. I really love it and it's been one of my favorite purchases from Novica. I would highly recommend Ketut Sandi's work to others, too.
Man oh man!! I was so excited to recieve the Flowers Chess set from Ketut Sandi. The craftsman ship of the pieces and the board itself are amazing. I enjoy not just playing but looking at each uniquely detailed piece. You guys are nuts!!

I bought one of Ketut Sandi's chess sets for my husband's Christmas present last year. He has expressed a desire to collect especially artful chess sets, and Sandi's set is the first of his new collection. We love playing with it or just looking at it--it is a unique, functional, and beautiful piece of art.
