Woodcarvings - Pre War
The god Vishnu as temple guard. Wooden hand coloured statue made in Bali 1920-1940
1920-1940
Subdued almost solemn statue. Vishnu sits on a stupa and has a mantra, a certain hand gesture in the Hindu mythology. This feature with the age factor is enough proof that this carving was NOT made for the tourists, but rather as a Hindu object to protect the visitor entering the temple. Most likely it was placed near a temple entrance in a prewar Balinese village. Real folk art! Clicking on the photo will show more photos & info.
