The sinuous coils of a serpent poise as though to strike, yet the face is that of a woman. Wayan Rendah explores the Balinese legend that says humans can transform their bodies into the animal of their choice. Smooth, blonde hibiscus wood lends its appeal to this fluid sculpture. Hibiscus wood exhibits colors ranging from white to light gray, dark gray or even black heartwood. This natural occurrence can rarely be replicated, making each carving exceptionally unique. Please expect slight differences in wood grain color and distribution patterns. Theme and artistic quality remain the same.
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.
