Balinese Brown Animal Themed Coconut Shell Sculpture
This intricately carved "seahorse" coconut shell is incredibly detailed and awe-inspiring. The craftmanship (or craftwomanship), by Eka, that went into making this piece into the sculpture it became is incredible. I gave this to my sixty-eight year old mother for her birthday and she loves it and displays it prominently in her home. Eka is an amazing artist and has an incredible talent.
This was a gift for my postdoctoral supervisor, who loves horses. She loved sculpture because of the displayed palm leaves, a subject researched and beloved to her mother. Very pleased!
