Featured Reviews on Balinese Power
Intricate and Impressive!
I purchased this handsome guy for myself - garnet is my birthstone and I loved the intricate design and artistry. The chain is a bit short (for me), so I will probably give the chain to a good friend and purchase another that is a little longer and possibly more substantial. I could not be more pleased with this purchase and Im sure you would be as well!
The details are clear, the shape amazing and the concept of a protective dragon in my home is sweet. Id love one about 2 feet long....

Handmade Suar Wood Relief Panel, "Baru Klinthing Dragon"$69.99
Masterfully carving Balinese suar wood, Seji Taram recalls the legend of the dragon, Baru Klinthing. He was born to a concubine of Ki Ageng Mangir II, a rebel, who would never accept a dragon as his son unless the creature could wrap its entire body around Mount Merapi. To accomplish this, Baru Klinthing had to use his tongue to reach his tail. The angry father cut off the dragon's tongue, which became a powerful spear and source of power.
Hand Carved Dragon Wall Sculpture, "Naga and Garuda"$117.99
Powerful and beautiful, Naga the dragon and Garuda the eagle symbolize vigorous spirits to the Balinese people. Seji Taram transforms suar wood into an exquisitely detailed panel as he carves it by hand with absolute artistic mastery. According to one of the many Balinese Hindu-Buddhist customs, the dragon represents the relationship between kings and priests, and effigies of the mystical creature are included for their cremation, for it is believed Naga will guide their soul so they may find their way to the next world.
