Extraordinary Antler Carving I
Our carved antlers are among the most precious, and the most dear, of our offerings. I acquire shed antlers from local friends in the Philadelphia area and carry them halfway around the world to be transformed into works of art (explaining to the custom officials why I have raw deer antlers in my suitcase is always interesting).
Halfway up to the volcano, in the center of the island, is the tiny village of Tampaksiring, Nyoman Lutur is just one of the very fine artists that use incredible hand skills along with small Dremel tools and a big imagination, to carve intricate designs into this natural material. Almost every inch of this extraordinary piece brings a new discovery such as images of a goddess, deer, bear, fish, wolf, eagle, ram, crow, and so much more: scarcely an inch of this piece is left uncarved. The more carefully you look, the more you see, with all images flowing together while they follow the natural curves of the antlers. Like the best of art, or the best of people, there's a world of discoveries and details to find every time you admire this masterpiece. Upon completion, each piece is totally unique and beautiful beyond belief.
