"Happiness and sadness are like twins who are very close. Once you are happy, you know that whatever made you happy is something that will also make you sad. So we just have to remember that all feelings are finally the same," says Wayan Rendah. To express the concept, he sculpts an exquisite mask from Balinese suar wood. One side is joyous while the other is sad.

I love this piece as it s in keeping with my favourite British Colonial decor. It hangs on a neutral wall above a large potted philodendron and looks fabulous. It s light weight and very well crafted. Love it.

"People always amazed"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I wanted this sculpture for so long. I love the way they look like the top is floating. And when friends/family even men that work in the building see it. When I tell them how its hand carved and one piece they all say AMAZING. And thats what it is amazing and beautiful. His talent is beyond belief.
