Curled up into a ball, a charming cat uses its paws to cover its eyes, ears, and mouth, embodying the maxim "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil." Bali's Nengah Sudarsana works with local artisans to hand-carve the sculpture from local suar wood, painting it with colors of grey and white.
Nengah Sudarsana has received 10 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1050 and the most recent for $5000. Proceeds were used to buy new tools and equipment, including an airbrush and a sander, as well as wood and finishing materials.
This artist positively impacts their community through job creation and provides jobs for 2 or more people.
