Balinese master carver Nyoman Subrata transforms suar wood into a sculpture worthy of admiration. Working with manual tools, Subrata reveals the presence of a beautiful woman wearing a traditional dance crown. Subrata's attention to detail is evident in the vivid facial features and the ornate crown, as well as her frangipani earrings and long hair.

The sculpture has the option to be displayed on the wall by adding a rope or string (not included).
