The tenets of Buddhism -- that a wholesome existence guided by understanding, contemplation, and concentration will release a person from the painful cycle of life and death -- inspire Wayan Rendah in the creation of this sculpture. Smooth details accentuate the smooth head and portly belly, revealing the artisan‘s ability to create emotive designs with local suar wood. Delicately hand-painted designs, such as the lotus flowers on the robe, complement the material‘s natural allure.
About the Artist: Wayan Rendah‘s father began teaching him to sculpt when he was a boy. ‘Balinese woodcarving touches me very deeply. I have learned a variety of arts in Bali, such as gamelan dance, but carving a piece of wood gives me an incomparable sensation,‘ he says. ‘After I finished school, I studied further because I needed more experience, and the tools and material I needed were beyond my financial reach. Exploring the abstract world refreshes my mind in creating new carvings.‘
The Wayan Rendah Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Wayan Rendah in Indonesia. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
