A valiant and noble Hanoman appears through the dexterous hands of Wayan Kandiyasa. He carves with devotion the sandstone image of this Ramayana hero, expertly detailing his portly figure. Hanoman, the simian king, helped Rama free his wife Sita after she was kidnapped by the evil Rahwana. The Ramayana tells of how he flew to Mt. Meru to procure enough earth to build a bridge to Sri Lanka, where Sita was helped captive. According to the legend, Bali was formed from earth that Hanoman let fall in the sea.
