A lovers' embrace imbues this sculpture with the power of intimacy. Holding each other tight, their bodies blend into the fascinating grain of suar wood. Wayan Rendah passionately carves the intertwined bodies of the loving couple. His exquisite artistry defines every detail of this work, embellished by the rich polished texture of the wood.
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.'
