A butterfly alights on the face of a beautiful woman with scarlet lips. Or perhaps it is two birds, facing each other as if in a test of wills. By Gusti Ngurah Semarajaya, the enigmatic hibiscus wood mask is painted by hand. It poses on a stand of guagule wood.

Beautiful colors, fine craftsmanship and quite elegant in appearance, especially with the right background. Great price, wonderful packaging and an international, cultural feel to the whole experience.
