With eyes closed, a young person whistles a casual tune. The wind ripples his long hair and a carefree serenity pervades this mask by Nyoman Naranata.
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.
Nyoman Naranata has received 7 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1000 and the most recent for $400.01. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of wood and to hire carvers to join him.
