Hands clasped in harmony, two dancers form an unbroken circle of peace. Born of the limitless imagination of Nyoman Karsa, this suar wood sculpture symbolizes earthly peace, harmony and intimacy.
About the Artist: Nyoman Karsa learned woodcarving from his father and the senior artists of his village. 'I have had my own work shop since 1987,' he says. 'I usually carve sculptures from ebony, suar, crocodile, and hibiscus woods. Each wood has specific characteristics of color, durability, and aroma. Some of my pieces deal with traditional dances, the stories of Ramayana and Mahabharata, sports, animals, and abstract figures. When creating a sculpture, I first see it in my mind.'
The Nyoman Karsa Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Nyoman Karsa in Indonesia. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
