Elegant and serious, a black and brown Chihuahua observes his surroundings with guarded reserve. Known as a good companion dog, Chihuahua‘s are courageous, extremely lively, proud, and enterprising; they give and demand affection. Nengah Sudarsana carves an admirable albesia wood mask taking care to recreate and capture the dog‘s unique essence as he hand-paints the piece.
About the Artist: "From an early age I loved natural things -- plants, animals, birds or sea life. When I was still quite young I knew I had an ability to translate nature into artful things of beauty. Although I have no formal art training and work purely from my own inspiration and intuition, I know what looks good and what doesn‘t look right in a carving. I particularly want to create wildlife and other animal themes in an exact, realistic and original way."
The Nengah Sudarsana Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Nengah Sudarsana in Indonesia. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
