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. ; About the Artist: 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."
