Two horn carvings of a pedanda, a Balinese priest
1930-1950
Rare objects. Masterly carved, the artist must have a full control and understanding of the material. Most likely carved by I gusti Lanang Djlantik from Iseh, Karangasem. He is depicted with a photo in the book "Bali, ATLAS KEBUDJAAN" Dr Goris and P L Dronkers (4-67). This photo shows Djlantik carving a similar pedanda horn carving. Until now I had never seen such a carving. Please click on the photo for more photos&info.

Wooden bust of a white boy made by a Balinese woodcarver.
1950-1970
Remarkable bust, made of heavy wood, and most likely carved as a result of a special request from the parents. On Bali most of the visiting tourists wanted to take home a souvenir. Many chose a woodcarving, and busts, especially djanger busts, were very popular. This young boy does not fit in the above mentioned category. The gifted carver paid a lot of attention to details, and maybe the parents chose this carver for his bust-making reputation.
