Seated beneath a palm tree, Buddha sits in meditation. Keeping alive the artisan heritage of her late husband, Putra Suteja, Eka removes the husk from a coconut shell and polishes the piece to a sheen before carving the images. Beautiful and original, it stands on an albesia wood base.
Please note size and coloring may differ as the artist works with natural coconut shell.
