Spreading its wings, a vulture is celebrated in this sculpture by Balinese artisan Pande Made Anom. He works with a single piece of natural suar wood, carving this sculpture entirely by hand with an intense attention to detail. In nature, vultures are an important part of the cycle of life, helping to prevent the spread of disease by consuming carrion.
