Details

Smooth crocodile wood carved by hand forms a delightful doll by Gusti Ngurah Semarajaya. The figure shows a serene countenance and elongated, artistic hands and feet. Dressed in handloomed ikat cloth, it is an exquisite example of Balinese art. "Ikat" means "to knot" in the Malaysian language, and the threads are tie-dyed weaving. The doll can be posed in a variety of positions; it can be displayed alone or on a base.

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.

"He is front and center in my home!"

I absolutely love my 'Serene Man'. I have him on my alter and he is the perfect focal piece for meditating. The craftsmanship is very impressive, too!

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!
