Hand carved masks
Bali & Java
"I learned to design from my father, this craft which is taught and learned from generation to generation."
"I am Balinese born and was named Nyoman Naranata by my parents in the traditional baby ceremony in 1970. When I was just an elementary student, the art of woodcarving was imprinted on my everyday life. Handicrafts are becoming the main wage earner in my village. As time passes and I get older, my experiences have led me to concentrate on carved masks. I learned to design from my father; this craft is taught and learned from generation to generation.
"The material I commonly used is hibiscus wood. It has good characteristics and it isn't too heavy. I look forward to having cooperation and partnership with Novica, which helps artists in marketing around the globe."
