BEAUTIFUL WOOD CARVED DRAGON
(SCULPTURES) FROM BALI
These beautiful woodcarvings are from a small village in Central
Bali, Indonesia. The wood carver creates this piece for use in ceremonies. Each
dragon is carved from a solid piece of Suar wood (similar to Koa) or ebony found
near the village. This artistic skill is a tradition that has been passed down
for hundreds of years in this family. In a recent trip to Bali, my wife and I
visited this wood carver and his family. We could not believe the intricate
detail of each piece. You can see from the picture below just how artistic these
people are. A digital picture hardly does it justice. Each dragon is carved by
hand with primitive tools. No other tools are used except a sharpening stone.
Each piece is from the heart, no pattern is used. You have to admire their
artistic abilities. I watched them carve for a while when I was there. It's
amazing, I've never seen anything like it in my life. I bought back a few pieces
to share with the rest of the world. We know you will enjoy the feeling you get
from this piece. GREAT CONVERSATION PIECE. They make an
incredible coffee table addition.

Below is a picture of a coconut
hollowed out, polished and carved with precise care into a story of nature and
Balinese culture. It's amazing. The picture can't begin to do it justice. You
won't believe the incredible artistic capabilities the people from this small
village in Central Bali have until you have one yourself. It's a beautiful piece
of art work and an incredible conversation piece. I showed one to my friends and
we all wonder how the carver does it. Some of the cuts are 1/8" or less.
This piece is all hand carved and finished. No tools other than a knife and
sharpening stone were used. I watched them work for a little while. You have to
admire there artistic abilities. They make most of these carving as an offering
to their Gods. I've never seen anything like it in my life. I brought back a few
to share with the rest of the world. Hope you enjoy. Carving is about 6 to 7
inch in diameter. IT'S A GREAT GIFT.
