This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.

Product Features:

* Ketut Taram depicts Naga, son of Gadru, in a stunning suar wood sculpture
* Statures are of immortal dragons that are the only survivors of 1,000 eggs laid by the Goddess Gadru
* Decorative accessory is signed by the artist
* Despite their fearsome form, these dragons are highly revered. They dwell in the dimension below the Earth-plane, where they wrap themselves around Bedawang Nala, the gigantic turtle who supports the world on his back. The dragons steady Bedawang Nala, reducing earthquakes and making the Earth safer. For humans, these servants of humanity symbolize safety, protection, shelter and clothing

Story Behind the Art:

'My name is Ketut Taram and I was born in the Gianyar regency, Bali, in 1967. I learned how to create my first sculpture from my older brother, Made Mudiawan. From 1975 until 1990 I worked primarily in suar wood. Then, from 1990 until 2000, I made the sculptures from sandalwood. Lately, I enjoy sculpturing with both. As the son of Wayan Kicen, a wood carver, it is easy and enjoyable for me to transfer my imagination into my work.'
