WOOD CARVINGS

We are very pleased to present an area that Kundalini is very well known for, inspired creations from wood. The mastery of the Balinese artisans who work in wood is world renown and it never fails to amaze me how clever they are in taking a piece of wood and changing it into incredible forms and figures.

We are very selective of what we choose not only for quality craftsmanship, but also the character and flow of the wood. We carefully clean and oil each of the natural wood pieces here in America so that it not only protects the wood, but that the true beauty of the piece can be shown in its best light. It’s an extra step that few other importers take but we feel it is worth it. You will too when you proudly display these works in your home or shop as some of the finest carvings around!

It gets more and more difficult each trip to find good quality craftsmanship in wood these days in Indonesia. Large buyers from around the world have been only concerned with quantity and price, so great carvers who used to do magnificent works of art are now businessmen selling other people’s work or carve items that can be done much quicker and not the same quality and pride that they used to take in creating their art. The economic situation over there the past year or two has not helped, with materials rising 3 to 4 times than previously, but also the peaceful carefree attitude that helps in the act of creating inspired work.

We encourage the artisans to do their best work and are willing to pay more in order to motivate and to keep the traditions alive. As Western attitudes and values continue to envelop and overwhelm the rich heritage of the Balinese and Indonesia, one faces a daunting task ahead that some of the best will be a thing of the past.


 


PARASITE WOOD CARVINGS

World renowned for their artistic skills, the villagers of the Highlands in Bali have created these beautiful wood carvings using only chisels, knives and their remarkable imaginations.
The burls are cause by a parasitic vine that attacks the China Berry Tree in Indonesia. To preserve the tree, infected areas are cut off and later transformed into these carvings that seem to come alive in the artisans hands.
Each piece is carefully chosen for its inspired craftsmanship, assuring you the finest quality that Bali has to offer.
