Details

In this magnificent mahogany mask, Nyoman Subrata captures the beauty and poise of Sita, wife of Rama. Subrata works the wood with supreme mastery and exquisite detail. The smooth complexion of Sita is framed by an intricate headdress, allowing for a remarkable contrasting texture.

In the Ramayana epic, Sita is kidnapped by Rawana, the demon-king, and held hostage in his palace. Rawana coaxes Sita to stay with him and be his lover. Sita shields herself from Rawana's lust long enough for her husband, Rama, and an army of monkeys to rescue her. Sita now represents supreme devotion and compassion.

The hybiscus cross that you created is so spectacular! The details are wonderful and the stain color is perfect for the room for which it was intended. It is a beautiful piece. What patience and talent you have to create it. And what an eye for beauty in nature. I love it! Thank you for such a stunning creation. Bravo!
