Dancing flames inspire the design of this necklace from Bali. The sono wood pendant is shaped like Lidah Api (meaning "the tongue of fire") and is masterfully carved by hand by Gusti Lanang, from Bhakti Senang Hati. The black cotton necklace is adjustable.
"I'm Gusti Lanang, born in Tabanan Bali. I'm the fifth of six siblings, and I only studied up to the second year of Junior High School because my parents could no longer pay the school fee. When I was 14 years old, my father passed away. That year I also had a bad motorbike accident and had to have one of my legs amputated. I joined the foundation in 2007 and here I met the woman who became my wife. Now we have a son. My wife and I work together to provide for our little family and prepare for the future. I craft our products by hand, and my wife does the quality control. I hope you like our designs."
I still have not received this piece but by its look & description I believe it will fill my expectations. Art is expression & creativity & it looks like it falls within those parameters together with meaning
Sport & open outlook
