November 19, 2012 - This is a lovely little statue. Whimsy and serenity together. It sits in my meditation room on it's own cushion as a memorial to my 2 kitties who have gone beyond and makes me smile every time I see it.
Artisan: Nengah Sudarsana
"From an early age I loved natural things -- plants, animals, birds or sea life. I have a special appreciation for the often neglected dogs that populate Balinese villages, and when I see the way Western people treat their animals I hope someday Indonesians will appreciate their animals as much!
"When I was still quite young I knew I had an ability to translate nature into artful things of beauty. Because my life has always centered on animals and other natural themes, I use these as my subjects, usually interpreted in tropical woods. Now I have the opportunity to create art subjects incorporating not only Indonesian wildlife but also others from all corners of the earth.
"Although I have no formal art training and work purely from my own inspiration and intuition, I know what looks good and what doesn't look right in a carving. I particularly want to create wildlife and other animal themes in an exact, realistic and original way. Each piece is carefully created with this realism in mind. I will not allow anything out of my hands that I would not want to own and display in my own house. It's my highest desire that every piece goes to a home and will give great joy for as long as the owner has it."
