As an exquisite inspiration for all chess zealots and lovers of beauty in general comes this hand-carved set by Ketut Sandi. Each piece, carved with intricate and elegant detail, represents a Balinese god and invites close inspection and admiration. Both table and set are made from local cempaka wood and provide a timeless inspiration for expert and amateur alike.
Ketut Sandi has received 2 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1200 and the most recent for $1200. Proceeds were used to stock up on the wood he needs for his hand-carved artistry.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
