Details

Javanese artisan Widanti crafts a tricky puzzle from natural teak wood. Can you separate the wooden pieces from the cords? The artisan names the puzzle omed-omedan, which means "pull-pull" in the Balinese language. Omed-omedan, also known as 'The Kissing Ritual', is a ceremony held by the young people of Banjar Kaja Sesetan in Denpasar, Bali. It originates from a fight between a male and female pig and represents the push and pull of positive and negative elements.

"GIft for Fun!"

My parents have the usual Shepards Hook with the common black square feeder for the birds year after year. My dad has a great sense of humor, so this is going to be his birthday present in December! He will absolutely love it and enjoy watching the birds even more with a smile on his face and a chuckle! It will definitely be one of his more uncommon presents he has ever received through the years! Great price so totally worth it!
