Keeping alive the artisan heritage of Bali's Putra Suteja, his family presents a beautiful spherical sculpture of a praying Buddha sitting among flowers and leaves. The sculpture is created by removing the husk from a coconut shell and polishing it to a sheen; the designs and motifs are then carved by hand. The elegant and original sculpture stands on a removable albesia wood base.
