Celebrating their life together, a group of elephants is depicted in this beautiful and intricate relief panel from Bali. Ketut Sandi creates this relief, hand-carving this scene from a single piece of cempaka wood. You'll appreciate the keen attention to detail, as this stunning relief is realized with several layers that add depth.
Ketut Sandi has received 2 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1200 and the most recent for $1200. Proceeds were used to stock up on the wood he needs for his hand-carved artistry.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
