Description
Nyoman Subrata delicately carves the heroic royal couple of the Hindu epic The Ramayana: Rama and Sita. The Ramayana tells the story of Rama, the seventh incarnation of the god Vishnu, who eventually wins Sita in marriage. Displaced as rightful heir to his father's throne, Rama goes into exile with Sita and his brother Lakshmana. Sita is later abducted by the demon-king Ravana. Rama, with the aid of the monkey general Hanoman, searches for Sita and slays Rawana, rescuing her. Rama then regains his throne. Rumors and gossip accuse Sita of adultery during her captivity. Although innocent, she bears Rama's twin sons in exile, sheltered by the hermit Valmiki, the author of the poem. Many years pass, but eventually, Rama and Sita reunite in love. This sculpture was created in suar wood which is responsible for the richness of color that can be seen in this masterpiece. Makes a wonderful gift or can easily be displayed in the home.

    This sculpture will become an heirloom

    Nyoman Subrata is a very artistic and talented artist. This Rama & Sita woodcarving sculpture has the very intricate detail carving. The wood finishing is just perfect. I am originally from Indonesia, so I am very familiar with Indonesian wood carving. This sculpture is now placed on my dresser, together with my other Indonesian brides & grooms sculpture. Terima kasih, Nyoman Subrata.
