Details

Highly saturated colors of oil paint bring to life to this handcrafted mask sculpture presented by Bali's Nyoman Subrata. Believed to be king of the spirits, Barong is a panther-like creature that figures prominently in Balinese mythology. He is the leader of the hosts of good, and enemy of Rangda, the demon queen. The battle between Barong and Rangda is featured in the Barong dance and represents the eternal battle between good and evil.

This Wood Carved Ganesha is one of the most beautiful pieces I own. The detail is absolutely beautiful. For the price, this is hard to beat. The artist is truly masterful. I highly recommend buying from this artist!

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.
