Religious Wood Sculpture
Purchased for my sister who collects angels and also does wood carving. She loved it!!! The carving and finish is just stunning.
The images online do not do the actual retablo justice. The color choices and depth of the box greatly amplifies Jesus on the cross. It is so beautiful. It looks fantastic next to my Virgin Mary and Nativity retablos. All are well constructed and substantial. Every surface has great detail. Thank you again Alejandro Chavez!
I bought this sculpture to sit on my bedroom dresser because what better place to celebrate the ultimate "Love of the Ages" epitomized by Rama & Sita? And, while the pictures on the Novica site are accurate, there's somehow no comparison to how amazingly awesome this sculpture is up close & personal. The "presence" of this sculpture comes across like a quad-shot of cosmic esspresso! The carving is exquisite, kind of jaw-droppingly so. As a trained artist & craftsperson, myself, I am humbled in its presence. Dearest Nyoman Subrata, though this is not the first beautiful carving of yours I own, & though each one is treasured, your Rama & Sita sculpture has now become one of the "crown jewels" in my collection of sacred art. Thank you so much for sharing your gifts with me, for adding to the beauty of my home, & for the sublime awe I experience in the presence of your creations.
