Details

This Balinese hermit leads a life of asceticism and lives in a cave away from the hustle and bustle of civilization. On his head is the tattoo of the dragon that got into his cave, as legend would tell. Gusti Ngurah Semarajaya carves the mythic character from crocodile wood and dresses him in a cotton robe. The doll can be posed in a variety of positions.

"A Good Listener"

I gave the doll to a friend for her birthday and she was thrilled. She placed the doll among her many plants and flowers and he just adds that much more beauty and serenity to her inside garden. The doll is beautifully made and looks exactly like the display picture.

I have three different painted boxes from this artist. They catch my eye when I walk past. The colors, the scene, and the unique box shapes.
