Details

Covered with frangipani blossoms, an elaborate headdress crowns a young dancer. Nyoman Subrata sculpts this extraordinary mask from crocodile wood. The Legong Keraton is probably one of Bali's most important dances. It tells of the King of Lasem, who finds the beautiful Rangkesari lost in the woods and locks her in a house of stone. Her outraged brother learns of this and demands she be freed under threat of war. But Lasem refuses and goes to war – ignoring Rangkesari's pleas for peace. On his way to the battlefield, Lasem encounters a bird of ill omen who foretells his death. The dance dramatizes the farewells before Lasem departs to the battlefield where he is killed.

The hybiscus cross that you created is so spectacular! The details are wonderful and the stain color is perfect for the room for which it was intended. It is a beautiful piece. What patience and talent you have to create it. And what an eye for beauty in nature. I love it! Thank you for such a stunning creation. Bravo!
