He is a teacher at a school near his village. After school, he takes a brief rest before beginning work on his art.
The father of a son and two daughters, Wayan Mustika is a wood carver from the Gianyar regency. He is also a teacher at a school near his village. After school, he takes a brief rest before beginning work on his art. For a while, his children assisted him until his elder daughter got married in 2002. The other daughter lives in a different area and his son is away at school. Today Mustika and his wife live alone.
In 1965, under the guidance of Bapak (Sir) Kuaci, Mustika learned to carve the traditional Garuda Wisnu figure. This portrays the god Wisnu riding on the Garuda bird. Then Mustika learned to carve traditional Balinese items on buildings. A few years later, in 1988, his interest moved to modern and abstract sculptures, which he continues to create at present.

Thank you, Wayan Mustika, for your beautiful sculpture ""The Kiss"". The artistry is more than I had hoped for and will enjoy it for many years. Good wishes for you and your family always!
We were very, very impressed with the sculpture ""The Kiss"", which I purchased for my wife for our 8th wedding anniversary. What a beautiful piece of artwork! The artistry is wonderful--both touching and powerful. Thank you for such a lovely gift!
I ordered ""The Kiss"" wood sculpture for my 5th wedding anniversary and it was a huge hit with my wife and with everyone who see it!! It is gorgeous and perfect in every way, best of all you cannot beat the price!! Everyone who see it thinks it was over $100!!! Not to distract from the superb gift wrapping and custom bamboo ornament & ribbon on the outside of the package. Beautiful! First class all the way! Highly recommended, without reservations!! A+ !
I recently purchased Mustika's ""Heart to Heart"" and it just arrived today. I purchased this for my boyfriend for our 8 year anniversary of being together; this year has been a tough year for us, but the symbolism in this sculpture was exactly how I could tell the story if I had the words. The ""perk"" on top of it all, was that the sculpture also looks like the number ""8"". I am very excited to give this to my sweetheart on our anniversary. I know he will love it, as he does his other wood-carved sculptures.
I ordered The Kiss as an anniversary present for my husband. It is simply exquisite--so gorgeous!! What a wonderful artist. My husband loved it. The customer service, the shipping, the product all were absolutely the top of the line--they kept you informed and the shipping was just as promised. The presentation of the product--beautifully wrapped was outstanding. I am so impressed with the website, service and product--I will tell everyone to shop here and I will be back to do more shopping. Thanks for everything!
Thank you for carving such an amazing wooden sculpture. I bought the Kiss Me sculpture for my husband for our 8th anniversary. He absolutely loved it and so did I. Even the wrapping was unique and beautiful. I would definitely order other works of art in the future. You have an amazing gift and talent. Thank you.
Today the gift arrived for my husband to celebrate our 8th year of marriage. I cant put into words how pleased I am with the article. It's a wooden sculpture called The Kiss, and the two figures embrace and make the number eight. The sculpture is absolutely wonderful, and the way the article is gift wrapped is an absolute delight. The little decoration on the package we have also kept and will display - hand sewn and just beautiful. The gift card was extremely tasteful and had the message I chose ...... there was also a postcard with handwritten messages from the artist in my language and in his. I shall be posting a picture of the package and the sculpture on my Facebook page, and will recommend my friends to use Novica so that they can find beautiful artifacts too. Thank you Diane
The piece I received is a beautiful piece of art. We can feel his soul and love in it. I absolutely enjoy looking at the kissing couple forming an 8. It makes me travel to where you live. Thank you so much for your authenticity :)
I ordered my first item from Novica for a Valentines gift. It was a wood sculpture ""The Kiss"" artist is Wayan Mustika from Bali. Received this item early and was wrapped so nice and neat with a nice card included and also had a hand made tag which was also very nice. The wood sculpture looked just like the picture and was just what I wanted. Loved the idea it was hand made. Would tell anyone to order from this company just wonderful also would like to thank Wayan for his great work keep up the great work. Thank You!
Mr. Wayan does beautiful and quality work, I just want it to say Thank you my husband really like your art :) !
I, too, purchased ""Acrobat Lovers"" and, like Wendy, couldn't be more pleased with it. Beautifully sculpted and amazingly packaged. Thank you, Mr. Mustika!
