Details

Facing each other, Sita proves her chastity to her husband surrounded by fire and a lotus flower, symbol of their divinity. Nyoman Indrawati Subrata of the Subrata Family details the monarchs with mesmerizing artistry as he carves the wall panel from crocodile wood. She finds inspiration in a passage from the Ramayana that tells how Rama begins to doubt Sita's loyalty after he has rescued her from the evil king. A loving wife, Sita offers to be set on fire to prove her innocence. Rama accepts and watches how, after the fire is consumed, Sita walks away unscathed, thus proving her love to him.

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

I bought this for my sister. She was thrilled and had lots of questions. I told her about your website and I?m sure she has been prowling around on it. She just loved it.
