Details

Deep green eyes gaze far away as a cat communes with nature. Delicately painted by hand, flowers and butterflies adorn his face and a beautiful young woman is observed by a feral kitten. Gusti Ngurah Semarajaya explores the feline psyche in a beautiful doll, crafted by hand. Carved from crocodile wood and dressed in handloomed ikat cloth, the kitty can be posed in a variety of positions.

"Ikat" means "to knot" in the Malaysian language, and the threads are dyed in random patterns before weaving.

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!
