Details

Hand-carved with sublime detail from crocodile wood, this most captivating jewelry box features a scene from the famed Hindu epic Ramayana. Wayan Rendah uses the white grain of crocodile wood to depict a chapter in the lives of Rama and his beloved wife Sita. Rendah then embellishes the piece with oil paints and gold leaf accents.

In the Ramayana, Rama was sent into exile to live in a forest, and his wife Sita followed him. Meanwhile, Rahwana the evil king of Alengka, was enchanted by the beauty of Sita, and wanted to have her as his concubine. He sent one of his most trusted knights, Marica, to tempt Sita by transforming himself into a golden deer. Sita was taken by her curiosity and asked Rama to catch the golden deer. Rama marked a magic circle in the ground for protection, warning Sita to stay within it while he was away looking for the deer. Rahwana then appeared in the form of an old beggar enticing Sita to leave the circle, and the evil king promptly kidnapped her. Many subsequent chapters in the Ramayana tell of Rama's adventures as he tries to rescue his wife.

"Beautiful, inspiring statue"

I am not a Buddhist, but I need some someone to remind me to relax and breathe. This beautiful statue sits near me as I work and does just that. The wood grain and carving is gorgeous and the Buddhas expression is perfect.

"Exquisite Work of Art"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Excellent detailed workmanship resulting from the obvious love the artist has for his craft. A stunningly beautiful display piece that immediately grabs your attention. It is even more intriguing than can be seen in the photographs. And a great value! Similar pieces sell for over three times the cost from other sources. I am thrilled to have this as part of my home. The piece came more quickly than I expected and was exceedingly well packed. You may think it would be some what delicate, but it is much more sturdy than it may seem from pictures.
