Details

Her face shows a mysterious lunar eclipse, enveloping the lovely woman in enigma. Carefully sculpted of crocodile wood and painted by hand, this doll represents a Balinese beauty. Gusti Ngurah Semarajaya creates an image that reflects the wealth of art and culture in Bali. She wears a gown of cotton ikat cloth. The word means "to tie" in the Malaysian language, and the threads are dyed in random patterns before weaving.
