Woodcarving masters turn pieces of wood into amazing works of art 8/7/2016 • Gloria Vargas
Woodcarving is one of the most ancient Balinese crafts traditionally practiced there. However, most of the carvings we see today are just replicas of already-existing designs.
Master woodcarvers are a dying breed. Coconuts TV team has done a great job: they visited the studio of I Wayan Mudana. Mudana is one of the last traditional Balinese carvers and this video is dedicated to his amazing work. Mudana is rightfully considered a master woodcarver. He always meditates and prays before he starts working on a new design. It takes him five or twelve months to finish a piece, but we guess that the result is worth it. What do you think?
