Employing local suar wood, Nyoman Karsa skillfully carves this image of Balinese monkeys. The pair strikes a loving pose, embraced in an expression of nature’s intimacy. Subtle details complement the wood’s alluring grain. Imbued with ecological sentiments, the work offers a unique touch to any interior. <br><br>Says Karsa, “Outside is the natural world; the lives of animals depend on human behavior. Numerous hunters travel around the world endangering the lives of animals, while only a few people concern themselves with finding the best way to save them from entirely disappearing. By creating animal statuettes I offer an alternative for animal lovers.”
We started Novica with a dream to create a better world for artisans, because a better world for artisans is a better world for all. Along the way, we discovered something very important – as artisans around the world succeeded, there was also a visible and profound impact on the communities around them.
Your purchases are that powerful. They directly and indirectly provide for education, help with health care, fund basic needs, support children, preserve disappearing arts, and of course, spread happiness around the world.
Our vision of the future is not one of mega factories producing cookie cutter products for all to cheaply consume. We reject that future!
Instead, we see a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time to create an item by hand. A future where time is protected, where stories are told, where unique details are honored. Love, respect, inclusiveness become our drivers.
We see an open-minded world that builds deeper bonds across nations, religions, and communities, forging cultural understanding, mutual respect and admiration.
