Details

The jungles of Southeast Asia are the home of a cute primate known for its tender nature. The slow loris spends the day sleeping, searching for food during the calm nights of its tropical habitat. However, the illegal wildlife trade has endangered the species, motivating Balinese artisans to hand-carve this precious sculpture to raise awareness. The artwork, presented by Made Wirata, is made from suar wood and features a little slow loris strongly embracing a tree as a symbol of their current situation.

"Perfect carving, an icon for a marine biologist."

The carving was very lifelike, except for all the tentacles curling the same way. It is a genuine conversation starter.

"Goldilocks small bear"

I love bears and have bear furniture pieces, done in the style of Black Forest bears. This bear has a sweet face, she is carved expertly and well made. I keep her on my side table by my side, in the living room where most of the other bears hang out.

"My Beloved"

When my yellow lab passed on, I lost my other half. We spoke/barked silently and understood each other completely. She is/was incredibly compassionate and part of all we did. My heart still aches and I have a little altar of her on her breakfast table (a humans bedside breakfast table; just the right height for her to eat and drink water) along with other lab figurines. It came at just the right time and I am comforted by it. Thank you Made Wirata.
