Indonesian artisan Made Mulyani captures the legend of Nyi Blorong, or "the south sea queen," in this exquisite suar wood wall sculpture. This mermaid of lore is said to live in the heart of the ocean where she controls the ability to create violent waves. Green is her color, and those who wear it along the south coast of Java are said to invite peril and an untimely end.
