Balinese Boma Mask Guardian Protector Demon Bali Wood Carving wall art Indonesia
Hand carved in Bali by talented carvers from a solid chunk pule wood. This is very heavy, thick and solid as you can see from the photos provided here. It is then hand painted in the traditional style in colorful antique red with green and blue finish, with gold leaf highlights.
This Mask is Boma, also known as "Child of the Earth". This is a wonderfully detailed rendition of Boma, carved specially for us by our Balinese friend Ganap Wayan. You will only find this carving here at Acadia World Traders. Boma was born to Dewa Wisnu & Dewi Pertiwi the Mother Earth Goddess, Boma was known as an evil demon. After death he was transformed into a benevolent spirit & guardian. His image is placed above doors and windows to this day to offer protection to the inhabitants and to maintain the fine balance between dark & light forces of the universe.
Perfect as part of an art collection or if you want to add the true flavor of exotic Bali to your home decor.
