Details

Seji Taram transforms Balinese suar wood into a beautiful wall sculpture. Frangipani blossoms nestle beneath the Hindu omkara symbol. Known as om or aum, omkara is the root of all sounds, emitted as a mantra during meditation. It is believed all desires will vanish, thus attaining self-realization and the highest of knowledge. This one letter symbolizes the most high in the Hindu pantheon, representing every kind of trinity such as Brahma-Vishnu-Shiva, past-present-future, birth-life-death; creation-preservation-destruction, and waking-dreaming-deep sleep.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

This artist striving to supporting their own or their family's basic needs and improve their livelihood.

Today, Seji is a strong female figure who heads a successful carving workshop. But in the days after her husband died, this future was far from guaranteed. With the carving skills she learned from her husband, Seji embraced her new reality with determination and commitment. As a result, she has not only been able to provide for her son, but now employs several other female artisans in her workshop.

Seji learned to carve from her husband. Sadly, he passed away and she was left to support herself and two children. Before he died, her husband urged her to be strong and become her own woman. She has done so and has grown their workshop. She now gives work to other carvers, and two women hand-finish the sculptures.

Seji learned to carve from her late husband. Their workshop continues to produce his designs and also the ones Seji has developed. She teaches her assistants to carve and carefully instructs her finishers in how to refine each detail of the sculptures.

Novica sales provide Seji with a steady income that has enabled her to grow her workshop. She is able to not only support her son but to provide steady wages to her workers, enabling them to support themselves and their families.

Seji Taram has received 5 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $1250 and the most recent for $2500. Proceeds were used to hire people to help in his workshop.

Since the death of her husband, Seji has not only survived — she has managed to thrive. She has grown her workshop and is now able to offer work to other artisans in her community.

Seji Taram is a widow. Her daughter is grown, Seji is raising her young son alone.

Seji is determined to give her son the best possible education.

This artist is currently confronting a major life challenge.

"Lovely Ohm Carving"

This is a beautifully carved wood piece. It has a small hanger on the back at the top and I have it hanging on the wall with some other Buddhist items. I would definitely purchase more items from this artist.

"One of my new treasures!"

Item is much prettier in real life. Picture does not do it justice. I have an Om tattoo and have always loved it. I plan to hang this on the wall above my new Buddha statue.

"A highly prized gift"

I purchased this for my niece and she was blown away! The gift wrapping was decoratively unique, drawing immediate attention to the box. Once she opened it and saw the hand carved wooden Om inside, she reacted with instant delight. She read aloud the enclosed card, fell in love with the artist and story. My niece is a deeply spiritual person and was drawn closely to this piece. I also felt an attachment to the beautiful sculpture and was very happy with the quality and craftsmanship. I highly recommend this artist, for a truly memorable work of art and a gift that will be remembered. It even arrived faster than I expected, with the expedited shipping for the holiday. A perfect choice, 100% happiness.

"Lovely carving of the Sacred Symbol AUM"

So very happy with this beautiful carving of the sacred AUM [OM] symbol. The carving came beautifully wrapped [I'm saving all the wrappings] with a very sweet note from the artisans. I would love to be able to respond personally to say "Thank You", if I had names and a personal address. The whole experience was most pleasant. I pray that Seji Taram and her family will have a blessed life. I hope they know that someone across the world wishes them well. Thank you, "Reborn"
