Graceful and beautiful, a gymnast poses on one toe and stretches to hold a ball over her head. Her routine reveals the strength and control of her taut body. Sukaenah captures her sinuous beauty in bronze. This handcrafted product may present miniscule pores that are imprinted from the crafting process.
About the Artist: Encouraged by her brother-in-law, Sukaenah decided to work with bronze. Together, they began to create a variety of art works, but their favorites are characters with strong historical and religious backgrounds, such as Shiva, Krishna, and Buddha. Working with bronze in a historical context has challenged me to learn more about history and culture, which I greatly enjoy," the artist confides.
The Sukaenah Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Sukaenah in Indonesia. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
