The couple wears traditional Balinese costumes as they hold each other romantically, and a smile radiates from each of their faces. It is rare for a couple in Bali to be seen in this type of pose and is said to be adopted from western culture. Rendah creates this piece in suar wood. ; About the Artist: Wayan Rendah; Wayan Rendah's father began teaching him to sculpt when he was a boy. "Balinese woodcarving touches me very deeply. I have learned a variety of arts in Bali, such as gamelan dance, but carving a piece of wood gives me an incomparable sensation," he says. "After I finished school, I studied further because I needed more experience, and the tools and material I needed were beyond my financial reach. Exploring the abstract world refreshes my mind in creating new carvings."
