Ida Bagus Njana
(1912 - 1985)
Probably the most known woodcarver on Bali. Produced in his younger years traditional carvings of high quality. Later he changed to fat images of women where there was no longer attention for detail but for the perfect line. He always worked with the structure of the wood. The TROPENMUSEUM in Amsterdam has a large collection of pre-war carvings of him.
