Details

The beautiful Bawang closes her eyes in meditation as her song of hope reaches the heavens and brings her riches. One of many of Bali's legendary characters, hers is a story of moral underpinnings as her destiny surprises her. Wayan Rendah hand-carves her visage from hibiscus wood to capture Bawang's ethereal origin with the wood's bicolor grain. Eloquently detailed, the mask features a bird pecking treasures on Bawang's head. A most vivid piece accompanied by mysticism to complement a personal collection.

A humble Bawang was envied by her sister Kesuna, who though rich, was full of lust and banished Bawang to the forest. Scared, Bawang began to pray for protection, her prayer akin to a bird's trill. Soon birds began to peck on her arms and neck leaving behind gold bracelets and necklaces. When Kesuna saw her sister's fate, she ran into the forest to seek protection, however instead of jewelry, she met only snakes and scorpions.

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.

"Captivating"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This simple but lovely piece is beautifully crafted. It is larger and more substantial than Id expected - but perfect for the spot I had in mind. The color and smoothness of the carved wood add a serene mood that complements my homes wood trim.

"Ocean-side Sibling-size"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This piece is PERFECT. It offsets the wallpaper and complements the wood frames in my home. Ive hung it above a doorway entering a room decorated with other sea motives as I live on the coast. We are 7 siblings, making it especially personal and meaningful. It brings me great pleasure to see it every time. It seems a lot larger than Id anticipated, but still is perfect. Im considering ordering one for my sister;s pool area.
