Rearing and prancing, two spirited horses race down forest paths beneath a rustling canopy of quivering leaves in the shadow of a tall volcanic peak. Their slender grace belies their enormous strength and stamina. Ketut Darma portrays the handsome steeds in a carving of native kepelan wood. Once the principal means of transportation in Bali, the horse is prized and admired. This exceptional relief panel is also bordered by an extravagantly-carved carved kepelan wood frame.
