Holding its front paws above its head, a black and white tuxedo cat reaches toward the sky while sitting in the asana, or lotus position. Inhaling and exhaling deeply, the cat practices Hindu yoga in a sculpture by Bali's Nengah Sudarsana. He masterfully carves and paints the albesia wood feline by hand.
Nengah Sudarsana has received 10 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1050 and the most recent for $5000. Proceeds were used to buy new tools and equipment, including an airbrush and a sander, as well as wood and finishing materials.
This artist positively impacts their community through job creation and provides jobs for 2 or more people.
This artist has dramatically improved their livelihood by working with NOVICA.
"The Year of the Coolest Cat"
I took a chance on ordering this little figurine as a gift for my own no-so-little tuxedo cat, and the results have been delightful! It is well made, and beautifully detailed. The statuette of the tuxedo yogini is now the focal point of an altar in our foyer, part of a celebration of the joy she has brought into our lives!
