Romantic love is a prominent theme in Balinese art, and this piece reflects the profound spiritual unity between two lovers. Carved from local crocodile wood by the talented Wayan Rendah in a striking modernistic style, the piece blends ancient Balinese carving techniques with minimalist contemporary art forms. The fluid lines of the crocodile wood's natural grain accentuate the graceful curves, creating a powerful image of love tempered with mystic undertones.
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.
