A caring monk sits atop his elephant, giving it a loving embrace as they continue on their journey. Meticulously crafted by hand, this playful ceramic statuette in light brown comes to us from the workshop of Putu Oka Mahendra in Bali.
Putu Oka Mahendra has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1300 and the most recent for $1100. Proceeds were used to invest in hiring more artisans from his community to increase production.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
