Category: Woodcarvings - Pre War
Description: Kneeling balinese woman made by I RODJA.
Period: 1930-1940
Comment: Nice carving of the famous Balinese artist I RODJA, who turned out to become one of Bali most important woodcarvers together with I GEREMBOEANG and IDA BAGUS NYANA. His output was limited because of his political activities in the fifties and sixties, what eventually caused his dramatic death in 1965. His work is displayed in the Tropenmuseum in Amsterdam and the Puri Likisanmuseum in Ubud Bali.

I Ktut Rodja
(1917 - 1965)
Brother in law of I Geremboeang. Very talented artist who as one of the first Balinese artists made beautiful Art Deco statues. Started his own gallery in the fifties in Mas which is still there Bonnet mentioned his "intricate female statues", which is certainly true when you look at the photo on the right. In almost all the Pita Maha-brochures his name(and Geremboeang) was at the top of the list and his work demanded the highest prices. One has to assume then that he(and Geremboeang) were the leading carvers at that time. He got politically engaged which resulted in his early death in 1965.
