Woodcarvings - Pre War
Magnificent bird sculpture, executed in the art deco style. By twisting the neck to the extreme the artist succeeds to display a maximum in expression.
Birds sculptures are popular on Bali. Birds represent the 'upper world' in the Hindu mythe. They are also the transport-animal for certain gods. Many birds-carvings were copied, like the well known bird with egg-bookends. But this one is a unigue artwork. Not many Bali carvers were able to copy such a masterpiece properly. Pls click on each photo to see two larger images.
