"My village has been renowned as a woodcarving center... the fantastic thing is that almost 90 percent of the women know how to carve."
"My name is Luh Mas Sri Pertamiari and I was born on December 13, 1973. My village has been renowned as a woodcarving center in Bali for many years. We may be familiar because of the men carvers, however the fantastic thing is that almost 90 percent of the women know how to carve. From a young age, boys and girls are introduced to carving.
"When I was a child, together with my two brothers, we learned wood carving, painting and sanding.
"When I graduated from senior high school I worked in tourism, however, after I married Made Sanjaya he asked me to quit my job and take care of our children at home. I'm an active kind of woman, and totally stopping my activities to stay home was driving me crazy! For that reason I started to do some carvings at home, and opened a small workshop near my house for people to see and appreciate my carvings."

Dear Miss Pertamiari: I just received my package containing The Balineses Kebyar Dancers. I just wanted to tell you that I am awstruck with the beauty and detail of these dancers. You have a great talent, and I am honored to have this lovely piece of art in my home. I will display it in a prominent area in my home and tell my friends of your talent. Nevermind what the male carvers are doing, you certainly have a gift. Good luck to you. Sincerely, Maureen Griffithni
I received the beautiful carving Lost In Thought from Luh Mas Sri Pertamiari. It is exactly as I knew it would be- Perfect. Because I gave this wood statuette as a gift to a dear friend I am now missing seeing it. I beg of the artist to make another one for me. It is absolutely perfect. I thank you for your skills and care in this work.
I just received two carvings from this artist that far exceeded expectations - Lost In Thought and Stretch - both so beautifully done. I have never seen such quality in other carvings I've collected. thank you Novica- these works are the best.

This work is wonderful! Thank you for sharing your talent with us :) I purchased the ""Yogi In Meditation"" and ""Lost In Thought"" (pictured in my album on my profile on this site.) I could not be more pleased and intend to collect more and share with friends as gifts. Very impressed. I am actually finishing this testimonial and shopping for another to add to my sculpture ;) D
Dear Luh Mas Sri Pertamiari, I'm writing this testimonial to express my appreciation of you and your wood carving artistry. I like both the cleverness and the uniqueness of your wood carvings. Your 'Man Levitates' sculpture really caught my attention. In fact, I liked it so much I ordered it even though I hadn't plan on doing so, at least not so soon after my first purchase in early December of 2011 through NOVICA since my money is a little short now-a-days thanks to the down U.S. economy. But I couldn't resist the temptation to purchase your 'Man Levitates' sculpture which arrived in the mail yesterday. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. I truly like your work. I put your sculpture in a prominent spot on my display shelf for visitors to my home to admire as a unique conversation piece. Ms. Pertamiari, I sincerely wish you continued success with your work in 2012. God be with you, Philip W.R. Fort Worth, Texas
I recently ordered the ""Lost in Thought"" sculpture by Luh Mas Sri Pertamiari. The package arrived wrapped in a beautiful plum paper with a hand-made Indonesian doll. I was absolutely delighted with the sculpture. It is an exceptional piece of art and beautiful. I have received many compliments from friends. I hope Luh decides to make more of the same sculptures as I would surely purchase another for one of my dear friends.
My friend called this evening and said she just received the wedding gift I sent her, which was your ""Love Flows"" wood craving. She said it is absolutely beautiful. Her and her new wife love it. So I wanted to say thank you Luh Mas Sri Pertamiari for your artistry in carving such a lovely wedding gift.
