Facing each other, Sita proves her chastity to her husband surrounded by fire and a lotus flower, symbol of their divinity. Nyoman Subrata details the monarchs with mesmerizing artistry as he carves the wall panel from crocodile wood. Subrata 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.
Please note wood's grain may differ.
Subrata has been a master carver for many years. He is one of the original Novica artisans and now provides work to other artisans at his carving workshop. He has trained his daughter, Indrawati, in all aspects of his business and she will keep the workshop going when Subrata no longer is able to.
Nyoman Subrata has received 6 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1300 and the most recent for $2600. Proceeds were used to stock up on the materials he needs, such as various woods.
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.
