Nirvana Hotei Buddha Sculpture reclining Handmade Balinese Art Wood carving
Hotei Buddha in Repose, reclining with his traveling bag surrounded by clouds, carved into the solid trunk of a gray hibiscus tree by Master Carver Pak Dewa Alit. The back of the carving is left natural and the Hotei is carved into the front with great details. The whole thing is left natural & waxed with clear beeswax. Hibiscus prized by the Balinese for it's amazing beautiful and dense two toned grain that is perfect for creating finer carvings such as this.
There is a grain crack in the wood with in the folds of his robes that has been repaired, it is stabilized & will crack no further and is hardly noticeable at all. You can see this in the last photo. This is a normal occurrence with natural wood.
I only offer a few of these carvings each year for sale, as this is not the common mass produced item you so often see on the market today. You will receive the exact piece we have pictured here. As this is one of a kind. A beautiful example of Balinese carving.
