Radiating intense spirituality and a soothing sense of tranquility, the Buddha portrays eternal bliss in an exquisite mask by Nyoman Subrata. Deep in meditation, the master is beatific and serene. Showcasing the rich grain of mahogany, this extraordinary sculpture is an inspiration in any setting.
Subrata is an artisan whose expertise stems from years of family tradition. His imagination and skill are evident in the flawless workmanship and intricate detailing of the sculpture. "I thank God for giving me a chance to be an artist, because I find my most excellent time working on artwork," Subrata says with gratitude.
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.
