Add a bit of nature to your holiday tree or delight the bird lover on your gift list with this set of four holiday ornaments. Indonesian artisan Gusti Ngurah Semarajaya hand makes these bell-shaped ornaments out of albesia wood and paints each with a heron stretching its wings on the shore of a beautiful blue lake surrounded by abundant green foliage and pink blossoms. The ornaments are decorated on both sides.
This artist has dramatically improved their livelihood by working with NOVICA.
Gusti Ngurah Semarajaya has received 7 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $500 and the most recent for $1000. Proceeds were used to invest in wood and additional labor for production.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
Gusti now has artisan assistants who help with the hand-painting of his designs. Each of these assistants works from home.
