"The lontar tradition has been passed down from generation to generation since the times before paper existed."
"My name is Nengah Dika, a lontar (palm leaf) craftsman from a village in eastern Bali. I was born on May 15, 1975. I have studied lontar art since I was twelve years of age.
"My father is member of a famous group of lontar craftsmen in our village. When I was little he often took me to the group where I'd watch the process of making lontar pieces step by step. The lontar tradition has been passed down from generation to generation since the times before paper existed. The pictures come from stories such as the Mahabharata and Ramayana and the Balinese calendar.
"My wife, Ni Luh Suryati, is a weaver: she discovered Novica before I did. They helped her promote her products and she found success on the website. One time, a tourist came to our art shop and said to my wife, 'I know you from the Novica website.' We were so proud and happy that art lovers around the world are recognizing our name and products. Thanks to Novica for this entire miracle for us!"

I just received ‘Great Epic of the Ramayana II,’ wall hanging. I also have ‘The Gods,’ Balinese calendar. They are both amazing pieces. The detail is breathtaking.

I just received the beautiful palm-leaf scroll Great Epic of the Ramayana I, by Nengah Dika. The illustration on line looked wonderful, detailed, traditional. However, it could not prepare me for the exquisite perfection of the actual object. I am extremely proud to own it now, and will treasure it until I can pass it down the generations. Thank you, Nengah Dika, for preserving your tradition, and sharing its fruits with others. And by the way, delivery was very quick, just under a week, and the packaging and presentation was secure and beautiful.
