This gorgeous hand-carved wooden relief sculptures represent the moment the Buddha attained enlightenment. He is deeply rooted to the earth while sitting on a lotus throne with lotus blossoms on the sides and a halo of flame.
The Monastery Store is committed to carrying altar images such as these that are created and shipped using sustainable materials while guaranteeing a fair price for the artisans involved.
These particular images come from Ni Putu Sri Ekawati and her studio in Bali.
"I'm from Bali. People say I'm a stubborn woman with strong principles and that I never give up. I like aerobic, yoga and also reading. I came from a simple family that strongly maintained Balinese customs and discipline. I love the tranquil environment during the night. It's the best time to evaluate myself — what I did today, and also the growth of the workshop. I keep trying any potential possibilities. We'll never know the result if we never try.
I really like wood sculpture, so now I have started to get involved myself in the design. I am inspired by the current trends and combine it with Balinese culture. The carving itself is done by three men and three women wood carvers who work with manual tools."
