Details

A young man and a young woman are locked in an endless kiss as eternal as youthful love itself. The fluid abstract form of this piece is a remarkable example of the superb skills of Wayan Rendah and the harmonious integration of modern art and Balinese traditional arts. Crafted with passion and dedication, this suar wood carving is a delightful and romantic piece to contemplate and enjoy.

"Beautiful workmanship!"

Got this to give to a new neighbor as a welcome gift and they absolutely loved it! I will likely buy another one or two to have on hand as future gifts.

"What a Showpiece!"

This wooden bottle holder was purchased as a housewarming gift for my son. When he opened the box and started to remove all the packing, to our surprise the snake was cracked at the base. So back it went for a replacement which arrived very quickly. Upon inspection, I was taken back by the extreme work that was put into this piece. It really is breathtaking and definitely a piece of art. You can feel that Wayan Rendah puts his heart and soul in his work. My son was extremely happy with his gift and cant wait to show it off. Such detail makes the snake appear alive. Youre such an artist Wayan. Will definitely purchase items from you again.
