Sandstone statuette, 'Buddha Serene I'

Item # 44271
Currently out of stock

Palms held open and eyes closed to distraction, Buddha relishes the serenity brought about by meditative contemplation. Like Buddha, Wayan Kandiyasa relishes tranquility before he sets to carve images of devotion. Kandiyasa works with sandstone quarried on the borders of the Ayung River. He carves the image of Buddha with sublime elegance, for carving has been his family's heritage for generations.

At age 29, Siddhartha left his wealthy family in pursuit of truth. After six years, Siddhartha experienced the religious epiphanies on which Buddhism is based. In short, a wholesome existence guided by the right understanding, the right thinking, the right speech, the right conduct, the right livelihood, the right effort, the right mindfulness, and the right concentration releases one from the painful cycle of life and death. Made in Indonesia.

Artisan: Wayan Kandiyasa

Artisan Wayan Kandiyasa

"My name is Wayan Kandiyasa and I was born on October 5, 1964 on the island of Bali. I come from a family of artists - my father is also a stone carver, who was taught by my grandfather.

"I make statues and relief work from a stone called paras. I like both traditional and modern styles. I first started to learn at the age of nine with my father, beginning with cleaning and finishing the statues he would make. At the age of thirteen I could already make small statues on my own. At that time, and even now, my inspiration comes to me when I am most relaxed and quiet. An image comes to me and I start to work as calmly as possible, trying to keep the original idea as simple as possible.

"I like very much to work with the Novica team, because now I can help support my family and concentrate on my work with the confidence that it is being promoted outside of Indonesia by people who understand and care about me as an artist."

The artistry of I Wayan Kandiyasa has been featured in the Los Angeles Business Journal.
