Details

Nyoman Indrawati Subrata of the Subrata Family hand carves this suar wood statuette of the Hindu deity Sarasvati, goddess of music, science and art. She is supported by a bird, wings outstretched, symbolizing the openness needed for creativity and learning. In her many hands she holds various gifts: a rebab (a musical instrument), a lontar or palm book (a symbol of knowledge), a genetri or bell (portraying science) and a lotus (the symbol of loveliness and purity).

The artisan carries on the extraordinary art work of her late father, Nyoman Subrata.

"Magnificent!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Barong is now busy protecting the house, frightening evil spirits but grinning heartily at the rest of us. He has added a colorful and life-enhancing presence that is a delight to encounter daily. After his arrival I particularly enjoyed watching Barong dance rituals on YouTube and highly recommend them to anyone contemplating ordering the mask since you ll understand his significance and character better. Incidentally, I had no trouble hanging him on the wall with a tiny bit of ingenuity.

"Wedding gift"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Absolutely beautiful. I gave this pair as a wedding gift and the recipients loved them. A unique piece of art has more meaning than a store bought, massed produced article and supports the craftsmen and their family. Please dont hesitate if considering a carving by the Subrata Family. You will not be disappointed.
