The unique variegation of crocodile wood complements this meticulously hand-carved statuette from Wayan Rendah. The statuette depicts Buddha making the vitarka mudra hand pose, which represents the discussion and transmission of the teachings of Buddha. In Bali, Buddha is typically depicted with a head full of tight curls, which represent his renunciation of the world, and with long earlobes, which convey his nobility.
Please note: Crocodile wood can vary widely in color and grain, making each statuette a unique work of art.
