This hand carved and finished wooden love statue is a great gift for a couple or for your loved one. Your partner will love this unique gift, handmade in Bali with a beautiful and elegant expression of love carved into wooden art. Each statue is unique — wood grain, color, and pattern will differ slightly from picture. Slight variations between pieces signify that these pieces are handmade, not mass produced. The tools used are basic and simple but authentic.
The figures are Rama and Sita — heroes of one of the most famous love stories of all time. They are deeply in love and together, as incarnations of Vishnu and Lakshmi, they embody perfect manhood and womanhood .
The statue will enhance any home and makes a great gift for a wedding or anniversary (the 5th anniversary is the wood anniversary).
The statue is made from the highly regarded and valued suar wood (samanea saman). This is a brown, hard wood — favored wood of importers outside of the tropics because the crisscrossed, inter- locking grain keeps the wood from cracking when moved to drier climates. It can be finished to a fairly high gloss. So, smooth to the touch, quite heavy (nice weight), dark orange brown color — the rich hues and delicate shape of this piece make it both romantic and soothing.
