Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

In addition to supporting his three children, Gusti also cares for a foster child.

Gusti Ngurah Semarajaya has received 7 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $500 and the most recent for $1000. Proceeds were used to invest in wood and additional labor for production.

This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.

Gusti now has artisan assistants who help with the hand-painting of his designs. Each of these assistants works from home.

Gusti pays for the education of his three children and his foster child.

"Simply Marvelous!"

This is the most unique item that I have purchased thus far. Have also purchased a display doll from the same artist. Love, love, love this little storyteller horse.

"My what stories she has to tell!"

There is already a testimonial for this wonderful doll - as this was one of my earliest purchases from Novica. I told a friend about this and she ordered one for herself, too. This doll is fantastic.

I just received my Storyteller Hippo. It is as delightful in person as it is in the photos online. I am impressed with the beautiful artwork that makes this storyteller doll unique. I would love to order at least one more so that the hippo has company. Thanks for sharing your talent!


The ""Lotus Buddha"" came today, and I am beyond pleased! This piece has definitely exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much for creating such beautiful work!
