Embraced by the crescent moon, a mother gazes enraptured at her child. He returns her loving look, chuckling with a sense of love and well-being. Wayan Rendah explores one of mankind's strongest bonds, celebrating the joy each finds in the other. The bas relief sculpture is made even more beautiful by the grain of suar 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.'
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.
