Carved Antler Brings Out the Dragon
Our carved antlers are among the most precious, and the most dear (haha), of our offerings. We acquire shed antlers from local friends in the Philadelphia area and bring them with me to Bali for carving. Halfway up to the volcano, in the center of the island, is the tiny village of Tampaksiring where traditional craftsmen carve these exquisite pieces, using small dental tools and a big imagination.
This exquisite dragon shows teeth in a threatening posture, while his or her body follows the natural antler shape: it's hard to believe it isn't actually in motion. If you look carefully, you can see small feet, one on each side. Most striking are the hundreds of dragon scales covering his back, while the underside shows flatter scales that look ready to slither across the ground. A special present to yourself, or for someone dear to you who appreciates dragons and incredible carvings.
