The lighter tones of the hibiscus wood used in this sculpture faintly expose fluid grain patterns, seemingly guiding the contemplative depth of this sculpture. A furrowed brow reflects the smooth artistry of Nyoman Naranata, who carves the piece by hand to evoke modern Balinese spirit. Captivating features are posed inventively atop an isolated arm in a sculpted statement of contemporary genius.

Hibiscus wood exhibits colors ranging from white to light gray, dark gray or even black heartwood. This natural occurrence can rarely be replicated, making each carving exceptionally unique. Please expect slight differences in wood grain color and distribution patterns. Theme and artistic quality remain the same.
