"Even though now I am alone, I always keep my spirit up and go on strong for my children."
"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. I decided to honor his memory by continuing carving, something I learnt from my father from a very young age. Dad would carve and my mother, brothers and I would finish the pieces. We worked this way until I married Putra Suteja.
"He liked to carve coconut shells and we enjoyed developing new styles and designs together, then I would make the samples. Now that I'm the sole provider for my children, I continue to carve coconut shells, and I also carve statuettes from wood.
"My children are my biggest motivation to work and to move on. Even though now I am alone, I always keep my spirit up and go on strong for my children. 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."
When I first saw Eka's 'Mother and her Child' I was so impressed, by the conception and artistry, that I did not look further for a gift for my mother on Mother's Day. I bought it right away. Thank you, Eka, you are truly an artist of the first order.
A most attractive carved double-heart, regrettably hit with a hefty duty by Australian Customs.
I purchased 2 items from Eka (1) Wood sculpture, 'Reaching for Love' and (2) Wood sculpture, 'Meditative Calm'. The first item was for myself as I loved the delicate carving featuring a woman in love - it portrays alot of emotions and feelings. There was no need for further words as the carving says it all. The second piece I bought as a gift for my yoga Master and he instantly loved it and is proud to display it in his yoga centre. Many thanks for such great efforts!

I purchased one of your wood sculptures as a wedding gift; the new couple was delighted with their beautiful art that reminded them of their love for each other. Your work is full of emotion and beauty. Thank you so much.
Thank you, Eka. This heart is so elegant, I like it a lot! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your lovely kids!
I discovered NOVICA as I was searching for unique Christmas gifts. I came across a particular one that caught my attention so I ordered it. I just received my wine holder and I couldnt be happier!!! NOVICA's attention to detail and uniqueness has blown me away!! My order was beautifully wrapped along with a personalized card from Bali!! I am ecstatic and want to recommend this site to everyone!
Hi Eka, I ordered one of your beautiful masks as a Christmas present for a friend. It was absolutely beautiful and the more I looked at it the harder it was to give away! I suspect I will be ordering one for myself in the near future. The quality was excellent and the design both unusual and exotic. Needless to say, she loved it. Thank you for the lovely piece of art that she will enjoy for many years to come.
I just received my Soul Embrace sculpture and absolutely love it! The hand craving is incredible. My husband and I will treasure it for many years to come.
I ordered and received my Wood Mask ""In three directions"" and it is amazing. I receive so many compliments when people see it on my wall. I will definately order more in the future from Eka.
I ordered Wood sculpture, 'Yoga Stretch' for my wife for our 5th wedding anniversary. It arrived today, is just as elegant as pictured and with the traditional gift for that anniversary being 'wood' and she being a yoga devotee it is the perfect gift. Thank you.
Eka's masks are by far my favorite on Novica and my goal is possess all of them. I just purchased 'Man of Fire' and it's just amazing. My only complaint is she needs to make more of them and quicker, sorry Eka, lol. I am waiting for 'Optimism' to come back on sale and check everyday.
I ordered the wood sculpture ""Yoga Stretch"" as surprise gift to a friend. It arrived in a timely fashion, and she loved it! It is sitting in a place of honor in her living room. Thank you for such lovely work, and for such a fair price too. I so very much appreciate it.
My first purchase from Eka was such a hit with the recipient, I ordered the wood sculpture ""Mother and Daughter"" as a birthday gift for my adult daughter. I'd been eyeing this particular sculpture for myself for quite awhile, but ended up gifting it to her instead and she loves it! Thank you again for another happy gift purchasing and giving experience.
Beautiful work! I am very happy with my hand carved mask.
In Three Directions is stunning and mesmerizing with the many layers of meaning within the imagery. The craftsmanship is superb and the artistry amazing.
We love supporting Eka and her family, and we love her work. Eka, we would love for you to make your heart sculpture again that was one heart with three hearts attached like rings. Thank you!

I treated myself to one of Eka's beautiful suar wood sculptures and I could not be more thrilled with my new piece of art! It arrived more quickly than I was expecting and is so much better in person... It is hard to explain how happy I was upon opening the box. Eka's craftsmanship is outstanding. The color of the wood is rich and lovely, beautiful grain to it, and the little details carved in to the sculpture are just wonderful. I am so proud to display this prominently in my home and look forward to buying from the talented Eka again in the future!

I am honored to display the Quiescent Buddha in my home. It is a beautiful work of art created by a beautiful artist. It brought tears to my eyes when I unwrapped my Buddha; so graceful, serene, and magnificently carved with love and caring. From my heart to yours, thank you, Eka.
Eka's work is beautiful. The minimalistic figures create such movement and emotion. She is talented indeed.
The ""Trees of Life"" and ""Dragonfly Garden"" coconut sculptures are gorgeous. They have such intricate detail that turns each into a masterpiece; finding something new and different each time you look at the sculpture. I am excited to see the reaction of the recipients for these sculptures. Both were packaged with the utmost care and protection. Thank you Eka!
I received the 'Heart Power' sculpture created by Eka. This sculpture is absolutely beautiful. Words cant explain the beauty that flows from it. I love it and am proud to display it in my home.
Woodstock, Vermont. USA
I have received two masks (now a total of three) which I love. The work and the wood has wonderful character and both are beautiful. Perfect.
I bought Eka's sculpture, ""Mother and Her Child,"" for a friend who, like me, also breastfeeds her young toddler. When she opened the package, the sculpture brought her to tears. The sculpture really communicated the special depth of comforting nursing achieves during the toddler years. Eka is a very talented and compassionate artist.
I just received my beautiful Nyi Blorong puzzle box, and it has more than exceeded my expectations! The details are incredible! I look forward to purchasing more pieces in the future. Thank you so much Eka for the truly stunning works you create.
I received Beloved Buddha in Meditation, and it's so elegant, detailed and lifelike that I pause to feel it and to feel better. My son, who is almost three, tried to give the Buddha a high five, which just showed me how the position Eka chose beckoned him to interact with the sculpture.

I ordered 'Herons in a Lotus Pond' and it was even more beautiful than the picture shown on the site. It is one of my favourite things on the wall in my home. Keep up the great work. Look forward to new offerings from you. All the best to you and your family.
Although I was hesitant about buying a Buddha statue online, my fears here were misplaced. The detail and ""serenity"" of the Buddha is exquisite. It's a decent-sized piece and has a nice weight. I also would like to compliment the ""Indonesian"" look of this statue, vs. the more traditional look of my other statue. It's unique and heartfelt, unlike all the mass-made pieces you see in the stores nowadays. Thanks.
Thank you so much Eka. i purchased a beautiful heart puzzle box which surpassed all expectations. it will forever hold me and my fiances hearts together. thank you for such a beautiful piece of artwork
Dear Eka, When I discovered your Beloved Buddha I was touched by the serene rendering of your exquisite carving skills. Thank you so much for sharing your Art. May your family be blessed... C.
Dear Elka, I received your wall panels today and I am blown away by the beauty of the carvings. I bought ""sweet frangipani flowers"" and also ""autum song"". I am very impressed by your skills and these pieces will get a very special place in my home. A huge thank you and all the best for you!
Dear Eka, The well-balanced enigmatic beauty of your Fairy of the Forest is absolutely stunning. Its exquisite rendering in delicate hibiscus wood is incredibly peaceful . Thank you for sharing your carving skills with the Novica world. May G-d bless you and your family. C.
I've now purchased three puzzle boxes as gifts for my grandchildren. The first was such a hit that now I have to keep the others supplied. Very special treasures by this charming lady to last a lifetime.
Thank you Eka for the creation of Tree of Life coconut sculpture which I was fortunate enough to purchase. What extraordinary talent you have an absolute Blessing. By chance I stumbled upon NOVICA and by chance I have been introduced to your beautiful craftsmanship. Warmest wishes and thanks to you and children.
I ordered two glorious buddha puzzle boxes for my wife and daughter and they loved them. I was surprised how beautiful they were and the fantastic quality of the craftsmanship. Eka definitely has a gift and i am looking forward to my next purchase.
Dearest Eka I am honored to own one of your masks it represents my granddaughter , I will treasure it always your passion comes through your work it's exquisite!
