Details

This superb sculpture is hand-carved by master carver Nyoman Subrata. It depicts the Hindu Ganesha, a half-man half-elephant demi-god who is worshiped for the protection he provides and the wisdom he exudes. Ganesha is also called Lambhodara, meaning big belly, and Winayaka, the leader in heaven amongst the angels and gods.

The story of Ganesha begins with the god Siwa as he meditates with his pregnant consort, the Goddess Parwati, in Kailasa palace on the peak of Ice Mountain. During their time of introspection, a powerful demon appears, wanting to destroy heaven. The only thing that can kill the demon and prevent the destruction of heaven is a demi-god who is neither animal nor human, but rather a combination of the two. The group of gods brings an elephant before Parwati, who has just given birth. She casts a powerful spell upon the unwitting creature, causing her newborn baby to take on characteristics of the powerful elephant and, in effect, creating the half-animal, half-man demi-god that can fight off the demon. The baby Ganesha then succeeds in killing the cruel demon and solidifying his legend. Makes a fascinating addition to any household setting.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Subrata has been a master carver for many years. He is one of the original Novica artisans and now provides work to other artisans at his carving workshop. He has trained his daughter, Indrawati, in all aspects of his business and she will keep the workshop going when Subrata no longer is able to.

Nyoman Subrata has received 6 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1300 and the most recent for $2600. Proceeds were used to stock up on the materials he needs, such as various woods.

Subrata employs carvers and finishers at his workshop.

This artist supports children under the age of 18.
