See more items from Wayan Rendah
The artistry of Wayan Rendah has been featured in numerous periodicals, including Sunset magazine. "It gives me great pleasure when one of my statues inspires somebody," the artist says.
Wayan Rendah's work has also been featured in Home Maker's magazine and in Keepers of the Arts, a beautiful hardcover book available through Novica.
"I was born in Bali on June 17, 1973. I am the oldest of seven children, in a family consisting of four brothers and three sisters. I started to learn to sculpt at the age of eight when I was still in primary school, learning from my father how to carve traditional statues from wood. Balinese woodcarving touches me very deeply. I have learned a variety of arts in Bali, such as gamelan dance, but carving a piece of wood gives me an incomparable sensation.
"At first, I sold my statues to the sellers in the art market and at small shops. After I finished school, I studied with Wayan Purna so as to have a stronger foundation to build upon, because even at a young age I knew that what I wanted was to be able to create the ideas I had in my head. But to do this I needed more experience, and the tools and material I needed were beyond my financial reach.
"My ideas were unconventional at the time - developing abstract figures inspired by the form and texture of the piece of wood I had selected, combining traditional themes with modern poses and more sensual shapes.
"As time went by I was able to bring out my ideas by selecting different types of wood and concentrating on the themes that could satisfy my creative desires. Exploring the abstract world refreshes my mind in creating new carvings. The mind and inspiration are two amazing things that encourage me to create special works of art. Wood has certain special characteristics that I would sacrifice if I worked with another medium like stone, which is not easily broken and produces very specific effects.
"I am married to a beautiful woman who helps me arrange my works to be exhibited in my small place and find new sources of inspiration.
"Since joining Novica, I have been able to continue to express my ideas and to support my family, and my work can be seen outside Bali. I am very grateful for this, because this is my strongest desire: to be able to create and share the ideas I have and support my family. I hope that the people who see my work enjoy it, as it gives me great pleasure when one of my statues inspires somebody - for this the foundation of my work.
"Times were so hard before I joined Novica. I couldn't afford to pay the hospital for my wife giving birth to our daughter. I had to give up my motorbike, the only thing we had left, to pay the hospital and take my wife and daughter back home.
"God answered my prayer, and here I am now living happily with my wife, a daughter, and a son. Regular income from Novica means so much to the life of my family, and the lives of other carvers in our village - I am now working with 20 carvers! We started with nothing. Now we have savings, and are building houses.
"My place is full of statues we're working on for Novica customers. Two or three times per week I visit Novica to deliver our finished sculptures, and to get paid for what has sold. It feels as though the Novica office is my own office, yet I don't have to pay for Novica, or Novica's employees, or any packaging or shipping expenses. I just get 24 hours of promotion every day, internationally.
"This is funny story that once happened to me. I had finished a statue and a tourist wanted to buy it, but after close inspection I noticed one finger was missing from its hand. I was mortified; I gave back the money for it and said I was sorry but that the statue was not for sale. I still have it as a reminder."
Beautiful workmanship. Clearly this is an artist who loves the art.

God of Fire has arrived promptly and in perfect condition. We are very pleased and cannot stop admiring I Wayan Rendah's artistry.
We purchased 2 dolphin carvings from this talented artist. We have a photo of our grandaughter opening her dolphin ""generations"" on Christmas. Her beaming smile says it all.
Dear I Wayan, I was so surprised to see what beautiful work you did. I was expecting something very different, of lesser quality. Your quality and workmanship are exceptional. I look forward to purchasing more of your products in the future. Thank you,
I am so pleased with the wooden statuette carved by Wayan Rendah. It is even more beautiful than I expected. It is proudly displayed in our dining room.
Just received the 'Fragrant Lady II' mask and was amazed at the detail and sensitivity of the carving. I Wayan Rendah is truly a master of carving. I can't wait to display the 'Lady' in my new apartment! Thanks again for such wonderful work.
On my first visit to the NOVICA site I fell in love with I Wayan Rendah's statuette ,The Kiss. I receive so many compliments on the piece. I love it so much that I purchased another as a gift for my sister. Last year, I helped with a special project at work and was asked what would I like as a gift of appreciation, I immediately chimed in The Upside-Down Kissing statuette by I Wayan Rendah. Mr. Rendah your work is so beautiful and makes me feel blessed to possess it. Thank you, I will treasure them always.
I recently purchased an Owl statue from I Wayan Rendah. The quality and crafsmanship are excellant.Great detail and pride show in his work. Looking forward to other owls,in flight or landing. Great job
I own several exquisite pieces by this artist. As excellent as the photos are at Novica.com they don't begin to do justice to these sensual scupltures. They are so lovingly carved they come to life when you bring them into your home. This is an artist that deserves acclaim worldwide......I just hope I get all my pieces at these prices before the world wakes up! Thank you Wayan Rendah for the beauty and art you've brought into my home.
I just received my third I Wayan Rendah sculpture. It is as stunning as the first two- he injects movement and life into his woods. His creations are a delight.
I selected a sculpture of a mother with baby and it is even more beautiful than the photograph. The wood grain and the finish give it natural colors and the form is fluid. My seven-year-old daughter liked it, and wondered ""how he made it"". I am proud to have this art in my home.
I have loved these carvings since first discovering this website. When the ""Bliss"" carving arrived I was overjoyed (and still am). It is all what I expected it to be and more! It will be perfect in my new house, which is my first house and my first I Wayan Rendah carving! Thank you so much for adding ""Bliss"" to my personal bliss.
I purchased Praying Woman from artist Wayan Rendah. It was absolutely beautiful! The detail on the statuette was very intricate. I highly recommend his work!
I received the beautiful ""unwind"" statuette yesterday. The packaging was very well done. And I was amazed at the craftmanship of the figure. Also amazing was the high level of imagination that has gone behind the carving.The statue could represent different things depending on the interpretation of the viewer. I was very happy to receive it. Thanks you!
The statue I purchased from you is more beautiful than the picture. The sensual lines and excellent craftsmanship make it a truly special work of art. Please consider signing your pieces. Thank you.
I could not have been more pleased with my purchase from NOVICA.com. My package arrived, beautifully wrapped, in no time and even included a personal postcard from Bali & Java. I am so glad I had the opportunity to purchase such a wonderful gift and I will be sure to watch for more.
I received my statuette ""The Kiss"" from I Wayan last week and I love it! The craftsmanship is flawless and the packaging was very secure. ""The Kiss"" has added a cultural touch to our home and I am very interested in purchasing another piece from him very soon!!! Thanks, I Wayan!
I just received my 'Dolphins' carving. It is a very beautiful wall decoration... The piece was packaged with foam on outer fins, wrapped with foam, bubble-wrapped, wrapped in paper and boxed. Came in perfect condition after crossing to and through the USA. Thanks,
I love the ""Goddess of Beauty and Knowledge"" relief carving by I Wayan Rendah. It is so beautifully crafted and intricately detailed. And although I am not Hindu, I find the goddess very inspiring! I highly recommend this artisan's work! Thank you!
The ""Dancing Mother"" sculpture by I Wayan Rendah is really delightful and has drawn many comments from friends for it's modern sensibility, wonderful sense of movement and and beautifully polished surface! I Wayan Rendah takes the traditional craft of wood carving to the next level! Excellent! Love it! Lori Reeves
Dear Wayan: I send you my deepest appreciation for the beautiful, reverent ""Woman with Offering"" sculpture that I have been enjoying daily since it arrived last month! I think it is wonderful that the Balinese people give offerings daily as a religious practice. It is a reminder to me to give offerings daily, in speech, action, meditation, or prayer for the blessings in my life. It is a lovingly carved, inspiring work by an inspired artist! Thank you Wayan! Sincerely, Lori
Dear I Wayan: Thank you for two beautiful sculptures that recently arrived. The lovely, abstract ""First Kiss"" sculpture will be a holiday gift to my sister as an introduction to your wonderful work! I also received a charming ""Gamelin Flute Player"" in crocodile wood that I just love! I am always so happy with your work! Many thanks and best wishes! Lori
Dear I Wayan, Once again I praise your work on two recent sculptures received yesterday from Bali! The ""Mepayas"" statuette is just lovely with its very sensual lines and dreamy, causal pose. It seems at once detailed and simplified -- a balance you achieve so well in your carving. I appreciate also that you signed the bottom of the sculpture! The Balinese dancer statuette is delightfully expressive in the crocodile word! You certainly convey the feeling of what it is like to dance! I really love both of these beautifully crafted pieces. You are very talented! Thanks very much! Sincerely, Lori
I purchased ""Morning Activity"" statue and could not be happier with the quality of the craftsmanship, the packing, and the detail. All my expectations were exceeded by both Novica and Wayan Rendaah. Thank You.
This is a beautiful item, I am so pleased with it!! Thank you so very much, I hope to do business with you again in the future!!
Please be sure to pass along to the artist and all of the people of his country THANKS SO MUCH for all of the great art, fine packaging, and the fun postcard, that they did for me, form me.... Richard Stilwell Charlotte North Carolina USA
The ""Family Peace"" statuette is a fabulous piece! This artist is brilliant and his work radiates his skill and attention to detail, as the wood grain compliments the figures. I am SO pleased. This gift will surely be artwork that is prominently displayed and I Wayan Rendah will be praised for his quality work. Thank you.
Rendah is a most creative and accomplished artist. The piece I purchased, Dancing Couple, is a beautifully detailed, wood sculpture. I couldn't be more pleased with it. Rendah is blessed with talent. I would definitely buy from her again. Thank you so much. I hope this letter is passed on to the artist herself.
I received the most beautiful wood carving this past week, that I Wayan Rendah created. This is the third statue I have purchased by this most creative artisan. The craftsmanship he puts into his work is a real gift. I certainly look forward to ordering more pieces from him in the future. I Wayan Rendah is an extraordinary artist.
artwork is beautifully executed and has so much character and a pleasant suprise that surpassed our expectations!
Hello, I Wayan Rendah. I am now the proud owner of some of your wonderful wood sculpture. It's the peice called Pregnant Grace, and it's the most beautiful thing I own. My daughter is coming soon to live with me. I can't wait to tell her about it and where it came from. I very glad that the oportunity came about for me to bring your work into my home. Thank you very much. Kevin Allen
I recently purchased the 'Meditating Yogi' statuette. It is absolutely the most beautiful piece of wood sculpture that I have ever seen. Thank you I Wayan Rendah. Please continue to sculpt these wonderful, passionate pieces. And thank you NOVICA for bringing these artisans to us.
I just received my beautifully wrapped package from Bali today. I was so happy it arrived safely. I had ordered a wood sculpture from I Wayan Rendah and I could not have been more pleased. She is so beautiful I expect her to come to life at any moment :) The detail is incredible. Thank you for sharing you beautiful art work with the rest of the world. I look forward to buying more from this artist. Thank you Novica for making it possible for us to find these wonderful items by these amazing artists that we would never be able to find here at home. I hope to one day make it to Bali to see the beauty that inspired so many incredibly talented artists.
I have several carvings from this talented artist. Each has it's own message, but they all relate. Excellent workmanship that is often complimented in my home. Excellent perfection.
I recently ordered the First Kiss sculpture from the NOVICA site as a gift for my fiancee. The simple abstract lines of the two figures in an embrace evoke memories of the love that we have for one another. The tasteful simplicity of the sculpture fits perfectly in our decor. We love your creativity! Thank you.
I am the proud ownwer of a Vishnu statuette by I Wayan Rendah This artist is truly gifted. The details of his carvings are amazing. I have never seen anything like it. Thank you Mr Rendah for adding sublime beauty to my surroundings. E. Borgstadt
This statue was beautiful. Natural features in the wood are used to enhance the piece's character while bringing uniqueness and depth to an already exquisite carving.
I purchased the wood mask ""Dolphin Lady"" from Wayan. It is such a beautiful piece of art, so intrically and exquisitely carved and stained. After I opened the package, I stared at the mask for about 15 minutes just enjoying the workmanship and was so happy to have this wonderful carving. Wayan included a picture postcard of a Balinese dancer, and on the back of the postcard wrote a few sayings in Balinese with translation. What a heart-warming touch. Wayan, you made me very happy to have this mask as I love dolphins and sunflowers, and to have both depicted in this wood mask is truly a blessing. I wish you success and happiness, thank you so much, Terri
The pieces ""Youth in Love"" and ""Love in Love"" arrived today. First of all, they were well packed and in great shape. The postcard from Bali was a thoughtful gesture as well. I could see from the pictures of his work, that I Wayan Rendah was a talented artist, but that's no substitute for seeing his work up close. They were more beautiful than I imagined. I will be buying many more of his pieces in the months to come. I also greatly appreciate the way that NOVICA keeps you informed of the progress of your shipment. Thanks
I have just received tho masks that I ordered from Bali. It immediately takes pride of place among my collection of masks. The service provided by Novica was outstanding and the masks arrived in perfect shape. Thank you very much.

I received the piece ""Meditating Yogi"" with amazing speed - and it is really beautiful. The lines are so fluid - I bought it as a gift for my husband and couldn't be more pleased! Thanks for a wonderful, easy shopping experience!
The photo on the website doesn't do justice to the luminous beauty of the ""Mother Love"" statue created by I Wayan Rendah. It is an exquisite piece to touch and to look at and it will have an honoured place in my home. Thank you.
Today I received ""The Embrace,"" a small wood carving by Mr. Rendah. It is a beautiful carving - sensual and curvy, suggestive and flowing. I also really appreciate the careful way it was packed. Each small corner was individually wrapped to keep it safe during shipping. Thank you!
Beautiful piece of art that shared something spiritual at the same time. I love his work.
I received my hand carved box from Bali today - I only ordered a week ago. It is exquisite in form and workmanship. The ebony wood is dense and has a satisfying heft. Thank you Novica - and most of all - to the craftsmen who create these gems. The quality and detail speak wholly of the integrity of the artist.
I received my carving today and I love it as much as I thought I would. The detail is incredible and for such a great price! It allows me to bring art into my house without having to be rich to do it. I can't wait to show ""The Kiss"" to my fiance'. Who knows? Maybe it will be our cake-topper!
I purchased the ""Cobra"" statue and the ""Ibuku"" pieces recently. The detail in the cobra is exquisite - the fangs are sharp, and the backside of the statue is as beautiful as the front. Ibuku is a beautiful, flowing piece. I Wayan Renda is a very talented man. I appreciate his work.
I just recieved the pair of dolphin carvings I ordered from I Wayan Rendah, and I must say that they are awe inspiring. The attention to detail and flowing shapes make these the highlight of my home.
Opening your package and receiving ""The Kiss"" really did make my day. The pictures do not do justice to breathtaking piece and I can't help but glance its way to admire it. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with the world. I look forward to adding more of your pieces to my home.
This wood sculpture was even more beautiful than I expected. I keep turning it over and over admiring each angle & view. I will definitely be purchasing more from this artist. When I received the sculpture, all my co-workers asked where I got such a lovely piece. I told them all about Novica & about Rendah. I couldn't believe how quickly the package got here. The wrapping was such a nice little surprise.
I have to say that the Yogi Romance statue that I purchased from Novica has mesmerized me from the very first time I saw it. The quality, of course is wonderful, but the sentiment alone is so powerful. It gives me hope just gazing at it in my living room. And of course, the postcard from Bali was a very warm and personal touch! I would recommend anything from the artist, I Wayan Rendah.
This statuette was far more beautiful than I ever expected! Not only do the wood and carving exude beauty, but I get a good feeling every time I look at it on my shelf. It came extremely well wrapped and in a timely manner.
This was my first time ordering from Novica. The carving was even more beautiful then the picture on the website shows. Excellent craftsmanship. I am very impressed with quality and workmanship. I have been recommending the website to all my friends. Thank you

I ordered the abstract piece entitled ""Nature's Vision"" a little while back, and while I have always loved well-wrought wood carvings and sculptures, this piece is truly amazing. It really looks like wood's true form was just waiting to be uncovered by I Wayan Rendah's skilled hands. I keep it in my office and get constant comments about it. Thank you so much for this beautiful work!
I wasn't quite sure what to expect of the ""Calonarang"" panel I ordered from this artist though my expectations were high. As high as my expectations were they were totally exceeded by the brilliant work of art that arrived at my door in a carefully wrapped package. Everyone who has laid eyes upon it has seen it as a wonder of hand made craftsmanship.
The carving was cantik and wrapped beautifully. Terima Kasih banyak.

I received my first purchase - a carved wood 'Hawk on the Globe'. It is amazingly realistic & absolutely perfect in every little detail. It is truly worth every penny (and more)! This artist is incredibly talented and I thank Novica for bringing his wonderful work to the public.
I can not express how thrilled and pleased and excited and happy I am with my sculpture ""The Embrace"". Mr. Rendah's work is just beautiful, I am blessed to have it. Not only that, but the lovely (and secure) way that the item was wrapped was a treat in itself - I almost wished I was giving it for a gift since I would have to re-wrap! But I won't be parting with this item soon, I will however definitely order more of Mr. Rendah's work. Sincerely, Cris S.
Thank you, Wayan, for the beautiful carving called ""anniversary embrace"". The wood is so beautiful and your talent of carving it is spectacular. I am so proud to show it in my home
I purchase the carving called Abstract Shadow. I was extremely happy and impressed with the work that went into it. The carving was well packaged and the postcard was a nice touch. You're a very gifted and talented artist. Thanks again.
I ordered ""meditating man"" and it is absolutely gorgeous !!! I bought it as a house warming present to myself and my husband. It was a surprise for him and I am pleased to say, that he loved it instantly, as I did. I love telling people that it came from Bali. Thank you I Wayan Rendah !!!!

I just received my second piece from I Wayan Rendah. ""Buddha"" is both beautiful and calming. The wood grain is amazing and the painted robe is gorgeous!! I love I Wayan and his God given talent. The two pieces are exquisite and draw much deserved attention. Thank you !!!
I purchased a lovely sculpture - I believe it was called the ""gymnast"" - it is absolutely beautiful and I am proud to display it in my home - Thank you so much, I Wayan.
THE MASK WE RECEIVED WAS GORGEOUS! VERY UNIQUE. IT LOOKS BEAUTIFUL IN OUR HALLWAY! THANK-YOU SO MUCH!
Just received the Newlyweds wood carving, it is lovely. I plan to give it to my cousin as a wedding present and I think they will love it, who wouldn't want a hand carved sculpture from Bali in their house. I would have no problem recommending this item to others, and if this is an example of the quality of the work then I am sure this is only one of many lovely items the artist produces.
I would like to thank I. Wayan Rendah for the beautiful Striking Cobra piece!!! A very dear person to me absolutely adores Cobras and loved this piece of art. In person it was so beatuifuly crafted it was everything I hoped for, and he was so surprised. Thank you so much. Your work will be enjoyed for centuries to come. J. Brown
I received my item today and I am soooooo impressed! I received my item within 4 days of winning the action all the way from Bali. The statue is even more impressive than in the picture. I am so pleased!!!! Tanja
I ordered ""The Kiss"" statuette for my wife and both of us really loved it. Flowing lines, no matter how you look at it, is so gracefully done. More power to you Mr. Wayan Rendah, the talent and touch that you have is truly God given.

I just received ""Upside Down Kissing"" by Wayan Rendah, and no wonder he can't keep it in stock! It's been on backorder every time i've looked, so when i saw that he had one available i ordered it immediately. What a lovely piece! I also have his moon goddess. They are both exquisite pieces of art, the wood the perfect medium for his fluid carvings. I plan to order more in the future. Thank you so much for making this available to us!
I recentlypurchased the""yoga prop""and the ""unnd statuette""from you . I must say that they are breathtaking pieces. I can't wait to add more of your work to my collection. Thank you so much for doing such great works.
Just received my purchase and the packaging is beutiful!! I will get to see the product when my wife opens it for christmas!! thank you!!
I purchased the Upside-down Kissing statuette and it is absolutely beautiful.
The statue that I purchased was even more beautiful that I ever expected. The craftsman and finish is beyond belief. It is refreshing to be able to give a gift that has been created by hand rather than mass produced.
I have purchased three of Wayan Rendah's wood sculptures and I couldn't be more impressed with the craftsmanship and detail. Everyone that has seen them is amazed; they are truly beautiful.
An absolutely fantastic piece of work! Arrived safe and sound. Thanks
Conneaut, O. USA

I recently purchased one of your wooden sculptures of a family - mother, father and child - as a gift for my husband to commemorate our 5th wedding anniversary. We are absolutely thrilled. It is definitely a center piece that brings much calm and serenity to our home. It also commemorates the birth of our first child in our 5th year of marriage. I couldn't have selected a more appropriate and inspiring piece of artwork. It will be a daily reminder to us of the importance of nature, art and binding love for a harmonious family life. I want to acknowledge you for your talent and skill and to encourage you to continue your artwork. Thank you......Christine Lenches-Hinkel

I received the Exquisite wood panel Buddha and Dharma by Wayan Rendah yesterday, and it is hanging on the wall, sending blessings to all the household. The wood is of exceptional quality and the artistry is to match! What a gifted artist! If you are contemplating a work by this gentleman, do not hesitate! Thank you Novica, for this wonderful site and opportunity to see and purchase the works of all these talented people! Namaste!
I have 4 traditional pieces by this fabulous artist, including the large Janger Dancer, and each is just spectacular in quality of wood, detail in carving, graceful composition and lovely expression. I have them together on my mantle as a collection, and constantly get compliments on their unusual, exotic beauty. Often I just sit and enjoy looking at them. With so much attention to composition and detail, they are truly collectors items. I know in time, I will be adding more... Thank you so much.
THE ARTWORK IS SO BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING ~ TRULY A PIECE I WILL TREASURE ALWAYS !
I recently purchased a statuette by the artist I Wayan Rendah as a gift for my husband. I found the carving exceptionally beautiful, just as I expected. My husband, a carver himself, appreciates the skill and time involved in creating such a wonderful work of art. We both admire Mr. Rendah's gift and talent as a true artist and will certainly make other purchases. Thank you Novica for making us aware of such a great artist.

The arrival of Wayan Rendah's ""Owl Couple"" took my breath away! His feeling for his natural subjects, his attention to detail and his artistic craftsmanship combine to make him one of my favorite carvers. I am simply awed by the perfection of these owls, and I will certainly save my dollars until I can add to my collection of his work. This one, incidentally, is my twelfth carving by the estimable Wayan Rendah!
The Vision statuette is exquisite and exceeded my expectations! Novica also took exceeding care in packaging the piece and even gift-wrapping it without me asking for it. It also arrived far faster than I anticipated. I showed my Vision statuette to a friend and he wants to buy one too! However, Vision is no longer listed in the catalogue, are you going to restock it anytime soon? More power to Novica and Wayan, Joel
""The Kiss"" is an absolutely beautiful work of art! My fiancee loved it! I will definitely purchase more of this artist's incredible work!
Greenfield, CA, U.S.A.
When I opened my package and held the ""Vison"" statuette in my hands, I just sat and marveled at how extraordinary the piece was. It is just magnificent! Thankyou for creating such a visual treasure. Every day I look at it, I'm so amazed by it's quality and craftsmanship. Your talent is a true gift. Many thanks!!!
Greenfield, CA, U.S.A.
The ""Owl Couple"" statuette is absolutely beautiful! Their detailed, expressive faces are truly a sight to see. With their life-like expressions, I'm expecting them to wink or call out at any moment! What a wonderful addition these birds are to my growing collection of Novica art. The fine craftmanship and artistry of the owls are so extraordinary. Every time I look at them I can only smile. Thank you once again for sharing your gifted, artistic talents with art crazed customers like myself.
It was upon accident that I stumbled across Novica.com and now it is one of my regularly visited websites. I just recently received my first item in the mail, 'unwind' by Wayan Rendah, and was completely blown away by the beauty of this piece. This is a truly gifted artist and I can't wait to purchase more of his work!
You can't possibly know how thrilled I was to receive your Zen sculpture. It is absolutely beautiful. I bought it for my daughter who meditates daily. It's her Christmas present and I can't wait to see her face light up when she opens this package. I'm giving it to her just the way you wrapped it. Even that is a work of art. What a talent you have!
I received the statue ""sensuality"" yesterday. It is a wonderful work of art. Thanks, Wayan for sharing your wonderful talent with the rest of the world.
St. Louis, Mo. U.S.A.
My husband and I received 'the couple in love' sculpture and we loved it. Thank you!.
Mr. Rendah , Thank you so much for the magnificent and unique creative originality in your sculpture. I have four of your pieces which have created an uplifting and beautiful presence in my home environment. I send heartfelt thanks and may your artistry have continuing true success. Best wishes Jeffrey Kroll
We received our Moon Goddess sculpture last night and LOVE it. His art is truly unique and beautiful to behold. This is the first of many purchases from Novica. I have sent the website link to at least 15 friends.
I just wanted to thank you for such a lovely piece of art. It arrived so quickly from Bali, in a time of such troubles, and it is absolutely beautiful. I will be recommending you and Novica to all my friends. Best wishes!
The buddha carving by Mr. Rendah is lovely. It is finely carved and has a sense of balance and serenity. I've had it a few weeks now and I find it becomes even more enjoyable over time. Best Wishes, E.A.
We received Wayan Rendah's ""Dolphin Splash"" wall panel yesterday. It is beautiful -- Mr. Rendah's attention to details and the overall effect is awesome! Mr. Rendah, you have brought some beauty and spirituality into our home and we very much thank you for it. You are an impressive artist. The attention to detail on this piece was fantastic -- the piece is finished on both sides and hangers are in place on the back so it was ready to hang, which it does beautifully! Thank you, Mr. Rendah, and thank you Novica!
Wayan, I gave your sculpture of ""Downward Dog"" to my yoga teacher - she LOVED it! You are truly a talented craftsman. Keep up the great work! Lynn
I was searching for a carving to remind me of the love my husband and I share. He's serving in the Middle East with the military, and I wanted something to comfort me, make me smile while he's away. I chose ""Our Love Forever"" because it reflects my love for my husband beautifully. The statuette arrived today, in a package that made me feel I'd received a gift - and indeed I did! Thank you for helping comfort me while my Love is in harm's way.
Rocky Hill, CT USA
My package from Novica just arrived. The carving by Wayan Rendah was astounding. The picture on the web site was very nice, but I never expected such a beautiful piece. I am just delighted with this piece of art, and will display it proudly in a very prominent place in my home. I will definitely recommend your web site and artisan's work to everyone. Thank you so much for bringing these wonderful items to us.
Satellite Beach, FL USA
I could not be more please with statue from Rendah. It is beautifully packaged. The presentation alone makes receiving the piece a very special experience. The statue itself could not be more wonderful. Thank you!
I have admired your magnificent work for years, but only recently purchased your 'Buddha Blessing' statuette. He is so lovely that it is hard to put into words. When I finished unwrapping him, I just wanted to hold him. The attention to detail in your carving is beyond anything I have ever seen. You are an amazing artist. Thank you so much.
Palmdale, Calif., USA
Marvelous wood sculpture. Much finer than expected!! Thank you.
Sculptures and masks for my own home & gifted to friends/family created by Mr. Wayan Rendah are ALL loved. Displayed carefully in respective homes, each piece brings beauty -- always noticed by visitors! The care and high craftsmanship evident in each piece is impressive -- details in the wood carvings as well as carefully presentation of an item! (Each recipient, myself included, kept the folded figure used as ""bow"") Now, when I present a gift wrapped in paper, with its the distinctive color/feel and a figure/""bow"" -- faces of family/friend giftees are filled with JOY and excitement! I plan to look for new arrivals and monitor ""wish-list"" work created by Mr. Wayan Rendah, an artist from the Bali/Java region ... I love the wonderful feeling that comes from giving a piece of art, knowing smiles when opening will continue whilst finding that perfect spot to display, showing to houseguests, and every time he/she walks past and admires his pieces. Thank You! for bringing happiness to my family, friends and me too! ??
Green Bay, Wisc., USA
Hi Wayan, My Eagle arrived today and was very beautiful. The packaging was great with a nice card from Bali too. Shipping faster than expected. Thanks, Don Aerts
I have purchased ""Upside-down Kissing"" by Wayan Rendah. The moment I viewed this piece, I fell in love with this piece. His craftsmanship of the couple reflects a beautiful sensual love.
My vision sculpture is gorgeous and eye-catching. I get so many compliments on it. I would not hesitate to give this artist's work as a gift.
I love the statue I ordered. I have it sitting on my dresser and every time I enter my room I am still in awe of it. I'm hoping to order Bathing At The River. It looks exquisite. Thank you Novica for bringing such talented artists to the United States.
I received your sculpture ""Bathing at the River"" recently. I love all my Novica purchases, but this is my favorite by far. Its beautiful.
The 'Buddha on Lotus Blessing' statuette was a gift for my wife but we both love it. Wayan Rendah has made a very beautiful carving with a lot of detail, even on parts that are normally not visible. A truly amazing piece of work which we will treasure throughout our lives. Wayan, thank you very much for sharing your skills with us. Inspiring indeed! Thank you Novica for making this all possible. Kind Regards, Ron & Ingrid Brinksma, Netherlands
I had asked Novica to arrange for my items to be shipped to my hotel in the US. I live in the United Kingdom. When I got the packages I had no idea what the quality would be. Well! I had ordered two statuettes of owls - one The Owl Couple, the other I think, Little Owl? They were absolutely beautiful - what a pleasure it is going to be to look at them every day. Wayan Rendah is a gifted artist and I feel most privileged to own some of his work. Thank you.

Wayan's ""Sacred Ceremony"" statuette was just what I was hoping for! I purchased it as a gift for a wedding renewal, and almost kept it for myself, it was that gorgeous, and so one-of-a-kind. I'm looking forward to all your future wonderful works! Frances
Your work is beautiful. We have the ""Loving Couple"". Thank you for sharing your talent with us.
I just received my fourth carving by Mr. Rendah, and it is as beautiful as I knew it would be. He is an artist who should receive international acclaim. His works not only please the eye, but the touch, and the soul. I love his work, and will continue to purchase as much as I can!
I just purchased my 3rd ""Yogi"" statue from Mr. Rendah. The two I currently have are beautiful, to the eye and to the touch. They inspire peace and a state of mindfulness, and his understanding of anatomy and the use of muscles in yoga is nothing short of astounding. I treasure these works, and hope to add to my collection in the future. They have all arrived quickly and beautifully wrapped, a testiment both to Novica and to the artist's concern for the welfare of the Spirit. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart!
Such a beautiful Owl. i admire individual artists that have the ability to produce such wonderful articles. My Owl is one of a kind and will find a special place in my home. Thank you Wayan, my you have years of success and happiness.
I just received The statue of ""The Upside Down Kiss"" by Wayan Rendah. It is beautiful, more than I had imagined. The pictures don't do it justice. The quality of the wood and the artistry is amazing. I hope to purchase more by this artist. I was also impressed by the care that was taken in boxing this item for shipping. Thank you.
the owl i received from you is beautiful. i put him up high, on a cabinet. he looks real. thank you so much for him, you are a great artist. Keep it up. Marilyn Lee Strunk

Dear Mr. Rendah, I just wanted to write to you and tell you that I think you are a very talented artist. I have purchased several pieces of your work for my home and I am always very excited when I receive a package from you. My daughter recently turned 21 years old. For her birthday, one of the presents I gave her was your work The Dreamer. I thought it was so lovely and as she turns into a woman, it captured a moment in her life as a young girl. Thank you, she was so excited about her gift.
I am completely elated over the talent of Wayan Rendah. I received my statue of ""Equine Twins"" and could not be happier. He is truly a gifted artist and I look forward to purchasing his work in the future. Thank you Novica for representing such a talented young man.
I recently purchased a wooden eagle from Bali. It came with great packaging and I think its great!! I love it. Thankyou
I am an interior designer for Viking yachts. We are constantly looking for unique boxes to display on our boats. I can't tell you how much we all love your work! You will be shipping many more orders to the Philadelphia, New Jersey area. Thank you so much!!!!!
Dear Wayan, SMILING GODDESS......WOW ! Prettier than poppies in a field of corn ! I'm astonished by the beauty & quality of your work ! -Simply the Best ! My Best Wishes,
I have your wonderful flute player craving in our bedroom. It brings a soothing exotic feel to the room.
All three wood sculptures I purchased were more beautiful than pictures give them credit. Truely inspiring works.
The Eagle is absolutely amazing! The workmanship incredible! This is our second carving by Wayan and we could not be more pleased. It is always a pleasure making a purchase from Novica because we know the work is beautiful and the cause is important.

I am thrilled having received my beautifully wrapped statues. I had found 6n of his statues in a shop here but didn't know the artist. In searching the internet under RATIH I finally found the master of such graceful lovingly sculpted gods and Goddesses. Arjuna and the pig is incredible and first ever sculpted of him. Wayan is a true master of sculpture. I am searching for a sculpture of the Goddess of wealth and beauty. In Hindu she's called LAXMI or VASYUNDARA in Nepal. Has he carved the Balinese version? Please advise as am looking forward to adding more of his work to my collection od Buddhas, Gods and Goddesses.. His work is splendid with such fine intricate detail its awesome. Thanks to myNovica am now a very happy member.
I ordered ""mother love"" and is a fantastic piece of art. Thank you! Manuela Bumbac, Saint Louis/USA
Chesterfield, VA. USA
I was so overwhelmed by the beauty and workmanship of my ""Gentle Lord Ganesha"". I have never seen such beautifully detailed artwork in any wood carving.
I received the sculpture ""Bathing at a River"" this morning. This is an absolutely stunning piece of work. Wayan has managed to capture and translate truly sensual beauty into this carving. I will most certainly be back for more.
I have only just opened my parcel and just had to compliment you once again on your craftsmanship .Mother Child and the Moon is absolutely superb. Once again I am so pleased with my purchase from Novica & Wayan Rendah .Thank you for letting us all share your beautiful carvings. Even better than it looks on screen if that's possible. Thank you
I have just received Abstract Sitting which is even better than I thought it would be .Once again great artistry Thank you so much
I love the bookends ""Guardian Monkeys"". You are a talented artist.
My desire of ancient saga and myth from old world has led me to Wayan Rendah's beautiful art works. I purchased Goddess Sri and goddess Ratna to add my collection of Bali saga statuettes and I am very pleased about the artist's skillful hand. Thank you Mr Wayan Rendah
My wife is currently pregnant with our first child and I wanted to surprise her with a special gift. Wayan Rendah's ""Pregnant Grace"" proved to be that very special gift. thank you
Today my ""Mother Owl"" carved statue arrived in perfect condition. She is absolutely beautiful and even more impressive is the overall fine workmanship. She is a wonderful addition to our home office credenza, and I can't wait for our grandchildren to see her! Kudos to the artist!
I received my Upside Down Kissing sculpture and am totally in awe of the beauty of it. I am a new admirer of Wayan Rendah and definitely will be ordering more of her works of art. Novica has made it possible for me to obtain what I thought was unobtainable; beautiful artwork from artist that I would have never known of.
My husband and I purchased the wood sculpture BLISS at, I believe, the end of 2007. I had been diagnosed with breast cancer and underwent a mastectomy that year. We were very happy with this wood sculpture, which seemed to be the perfect expression of our love for one another -- especially meaningful to us in that particular year. I thank Wayan for his wonderful artistry. The piece sits in a place of honor in our home, and we see it every day. Pat Niehoff

Upper Marlboro, MD
I have to absolutely say I was so pleased when I received the beautiful Lotus Blessing craving. It was absolutely more than what I expected. I have to agree that coming from so far away, you never know, but I can truly say that it was well packaged, nothing scratch and when I opened it, I felt a strong spiritual element that came over me. I wish I could reach out to Wayan Rendah, what a beautiful and skilled talent. I hope to purchase more in the near future. Kind regards,

This artist has an obvious passion for his craft! Excellent work! Very talented individual, and has been added to my ""favorite artists"" listing. Thank you for sharing your imagination with us.
I just received your work called The Kiss and I am very much please; I didn't want to open the wrapper because is was so elegantly wrapped and the figure wrapped around the package is intriguing, can you tell me about it? You are a gifted artist and your work is exquisite. Thank you very much and I look forward to purchasing more of your work in the future.
Beautiful carving thank you! Arrived well packaged and very rapidly.
I am absolutely thrilled with this beautiful Blessings Buddha ordered for my partner for her birthday. Not only did it arrive within five days of order - well packaged - but exceeded expectations. I will now order my second piece, called Bliss, and eagerly await its arrival. I was nervous initially about ordering but can thoroughly recommend this very talented artist's beautiful work. I only wish I could thank him personally but do hope that my testimonial reaches him. Kind regards
I've received the ""flying eagle"" wood carving. I was so impressed by the detailed workmanship. The positioning of the eagle flying is fantastic. The color of the hibiscus wood is beautiful. Thank-you so much. Debbie
I just received the wood carving ""Unwind"". It is beautiful beyond my expectations. Thank you for such a lovely creation.
I was looking for something special for our anniversary and found this site. The carvings are beautiful! I received ""My Heart and Yours"" and I was very pleased with it.... and the wrapping, too. The workmanship is excellent. It came much faster than I expected and in excellent condition. Thank you. M. Kennedy
I ordered a wood carving of Buddha from Wayan Rendah and it is exquisite! I love the quality of the carving, the expression on the face of Buddha and the type of wood used. It is just beautiful! Thank you so much! I also love that it is from an artist in Bali. I would love to visit sometime.
The Buddah I received from Wayan Rendah, ""Buddah Blessing"" , in crocodile wood, is just absolutely gorgeous. It is so expertly carved, and I love the pale wood, especially fitting in a Buddah. If I could afford it, I would buy all of his pieces!
For some time now I have been searching for a smiling Buddha to give to my darling wife. It is hard to describe the moment I came across the NOVICA site and first saw Wayan Rendah's statue of ""Jovial Buddha"" It is the first one I have seen with the most genuine smile reflected by the smile of Wayan's site photo. I immediately placed the order and thought how long will this take to arrive and could not believe it when I got to work today and there it was only 8 days later. I congratulate Wayan on the workmanship and the obvious heartfelt effort it would have taken to produce this work of art. I also gratulate the NOVICA team for making this purchase possible. Thank You
Kensington, California, USA
Dear Wayan, we just received your Goddess Sri Pudak statuette. What an exquisite piece of Art, she is stunning ! : ) With sincere gratitude.
I have just received the beautiful ""Fragrant Lady"" carving. I thought she was lovely from the picture on the website, but I am truly thrilled to hold this work of art in my hands, to see and feel the intricate details and the wise, peaceful and benevolent face that will now bring grace and beauty to my home. Thank you, Wayan Rendah, for sharing the blessing of your talents. You have brought me great joy by carving such a wonderful mask.
Wayan, if you ever read this, I hope to come back again to your country. I have a traditional mask that I got when in Ubud. What I enjoy about your carvings is the playful characterizations and geometric symmetry you give them, from your Buddha who is round ALL over to the ""Flute Player"" kicking her legs back and forth and her curving spine and flute. Graphic and beautiful------in rich warm wood. Thank You
It is beautiful! I am speechless!
North Hollywood, CA USA
I purchased ""Buddha on Lotus Blessing"" a short while ago and just received it today. It is absolutely stunning! The workmanship is beyond compare. Such a talented artist! I needn't have been concerned about possible damage in shipping, either. It was packaged so securely it could have withstood a hurricane! My Buddha is one of the most beautiful pieces I now own. Wayan Rendah is an unbelievable artist!!!
Acquired a beautiful wood carving from Wayan Rendah of a flute player. It is showing proudly in my bay window together with other balinese statues I already had. Got admiring comments on it. When I look at the flute player it gives me a happy feeling. Thank you very much Wayan for your artistry.
Dear Wayan, I bought the Buddha on a lotus as a christmas present for my husband. We were so very impressed by the beauty of the statue and of your craft work. We are very lucky to have this wonderful peace of art in our home , thank you and thank you Novica for the wonderful support of the artisans in the world.

Purchased ""Long, Slow Kiss"" as a wedding present. The sculpture is absolutely beautiful! The detail and craftsmanship surpassed my expectations. My husband wanted to keep it for ourselves!
Tucson, Arizona, USA
I have purchased many items from this artist, both expensive and inexpensive. I love them all! One large sculpture which I gave to my daughter-in-law was of a flute player in an elaborate head dress, lying on stomach, kicking up heels. I cannot find another one in Novica. I hope that is because there is not another one? But in any case, I would like to have the old description because it so meaningful; and I'd like to know the wood, etc. Please send data. Thank you for this wonderful work.
Orlando, Florida, USA
I'm purchasing ""Embracing the Rock"" for my friend, Charlotte, who LOVES stones. When we went to Avebury, England, she hugged the ancient rocks.
This was the first time I ordered from this website and I am totally satisfied. Not only this artist's work is amazing but the wrapping was great and the delay to get the gift was respected. I totally recommend this website and the beautiful items you purchase. Thanks a million times and God Bless
I purchased ""The Kiss"" as a gift to my girlfriend; I wanted something which represented the love and sensuality I feel that she exudes. When I received it, I was stunned. The lines are mesmerizing and the piece is simply beautiful; I couldn't be happier. This was exactly what I was looking for and she absolutely loved it! Thank you! Initially, I was worried about the quality since it's relatively inexpensive, but the craftsmanship is top-tier quality. Even the size is perfect. I would definitely buy more from this collection and plan to in the future.
Hi Dear: Mr. Wayan Rendah, you have done a super job on the ""Lotus Buddha Blessing Ebony Wood Sculpture"" !!! Thank you, I enjoy it.
UNIQUE CREATIVITY, QUALITY AND PROFESSIONALISM IN HIS PIECE GYMNAST YOGIS'. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. E,A.
I ordered ""Abstract Sitting"" for my brother for Christmas. It really is marvelous and a beautiful piece of work.
I recently received Wayan Rendah's 'Buddha on Lotus Blessing.' I must say that pictures do not do justice to the craftsmanship of this piece. The care and attention to detail is breathtaking, and this extends even to the packaging in which it arrived. I feel privileged to have this sculpture in my home, and I am displaying it proudly in my living room. Thank you Wayan!
I purchased the wood statuette, ""Harmony"" as a 5th anniversary gift for my son and daughter-in-law. It is absolutely beautiful!! My son and daughter-in-law just loved it. The simplicity of the piece is just exquisite and such beautiful craftsmanship. A very big ""thank you"" to Wayan Rendah for creating such a beautiful and treasured remembrance of their anniversary
I love my item and Wayan's work. It is such a stunning piece. I must admit that when I found that there was only one available during the ordering process, I decided to keep this one for myself and order a gift from another Novica artist for my mom for Mother's Day. I'm glad I did and she is very happy with the gift I chose for her. I keep it prominently displayed in the middle of my living room table as a conversation piece. Thanks Wayan, but please don't tell Mom. :)
So love it. this piece of art is made of the artist's heart. also i have to mention of the package, typical Bali style. i wish to come there one day.

I love the sculpture ""Man Doing Yoga"" by Wayan Rendah. The artistry is exemplary and the design is beautiful. I look forward to many more purchases of your superb work. Matu suksama
We purchased the Harvest Goddess mask by Wayan Rendah. The detail of the carving is spectacular, and my husband and I love the mask. Thank you!
I ordered your piece ""Heart Bond"" for my Son and Daughter-in-law's 5th Wedding Anniversary. It arrived within four days which I thought was amazing. It was beautifully gift wrapped and the recipients of the gift were just blown away by the workmanship and beauty of the piece. Thank you so much for enabling me to give them a gift that they will treasure for ever. I will definitely be buying from you again. Regards Yvonne Pfister
About 3 years ago, my daughter was required to write a paper for her art class in school. She went online to find a particular artifact to write about that inpsired her. She chose Wayan Rendah's wood statuette, ""Daydreamer"". This statue reflects my daughter to a ""T"". She even has a green balcony on the patio outside her bedroom door. My daughter's completed written paper, I felt, captured Mr. Rendah's portrayal of ""Daydreamer"" perfectly. She even connected this beautiful statue to parts of her life in ways that made me cry. I have always wanted to buy this statue and place it with her framed written paper - and now I can. Thank you. Mr. Rendah your work is beautiful and inspirational. The Lucey Family
Just wanted to say that I ordered ""the kiss"" carving for my Wife on our 5th wedding anniversary. It took just over a week to arrive, which was quicker than the estimated delivery time. The gift was wrapped beautiful with a nice paper figurine attached. My wife loves the piece and it currently resides on top of the piano. I was very impressed with workmanship in the piece and will certainly look out to order again from this site. Cathal.

I've purchased two of your beautiful and romantic wood sculptures as wedding gifts, and I've been told by both recipients that they love their gifts and how much they mean to them. Thank you so much for your expertise and artistry.
Wonderful and unexpected detail in this Eagle, I especially like the upward sweep of its wings. A real pleasure doing business with someone in another part of the world I would normally not be exposed to, sincerely Jesus.
Majestic!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. Rendah. U R Blessed. May God give u excellent health and thank him for ur hands and your talent. Looking forward to collect as many pcs. as possible. Thanks 2 u and Novica that made it possible. Would like to send u a gift from NY, USA. How? Ed.

First of all I just want to say, wow. The picture is exact and yet somehow seeing this 'Buddha Blessing' statue in person is even more spectacular. The detail in the hands, sleeves, hair and ears is so perfect that it looks like a miniature of a life-size Buddha. The type of wood used and the color are also very beautiful. I plan to start collecting your statues as I find they reflect the essence of your craft. Thank you so much for being such a gifted craftsman!
Hello Wayan! I just received my Ebony statuette of your ""Buddha on Lotus Blessing"" and it is absolutely amazing! I had already purchased another Buddha (also amazing) and this one is even more artistic and just as beautiful. I love your work and definitely feel inspired by these wonderful Buddha statues. I can't wait to see what else you make. Thank you again for creating such beautiful art! :-)
I recently purchased your Couple in Love statuette. It is such an intimate work of art. Their is so much emotion in the couple's pose. Beautiful! Thank you! Melanie from Philadelphia, Pa USA
Recently purchased three (3) pieces. Excellent work and even more beautiful in person than the photographs. Very nice!
I purchased the Family Love statuette for my husband for our 5 year 'wooden' anniversary. I was more than pleased with this piece. It was more stunning in person than online. The package came shortly after I ordered and the gift wrapping was incredible. I loved the personalization of the note inside and it felt like someone had made this especially for us. This piece is special to us also because it captured so many important pieces of our lives all at once. I highly recommend Wayan's art. It's fantastic.
More than what I expected. I purchased several articles and the artistry and quality of the wood sculptures are exceptional and flawless.The prices are are very reasonable. Novica is the best place for purchasing exotic quality art work without a doubt
thanks, Wayan Rendah, a word of art in wood,i very much appreciate the significance of his work
I recently ordered a wood sculpture from this artist entitled ""My Heart and Yours"" for my daughter and son-in-law for their 5th wedding anniversary. I had the sculpture sent to my home so I could view it before presenting it to them. I was impressed with the work and the quality of the workmanship. The wood is beautiful. I would recommend this website to anyone looking for something unique and different.
My statue arrived today and it is even more beautiful than the photograph can convey. It is breathtaking and perfect. I cannot recommend this artist enough. I love it. The design is so intricate and detailed, it is wonderful. Stunning. The statue is Kala Rau and the Ratih Goddess. There are other statues of Wayan Rendah that I love, so I will be purchasing some more. This one is so lifelike, beautifully carved and perfect, it will probably always be my favorite. THANK YOU WAYAN RENDAH AND NOVICA!!!!
For years I've wanted a Buddha in our house...we are not Buddhists, but we think his ideas made a positive impact on the civilization of mankind. When I stumbled across the Laughing Buddah by Wayan Rendah, my immediate reaction was to laugh. It was a hearty, loving laugh, totally appropriate for a Buddha in our house where laughter is encouraged and cherished. But, I just couldn't justify the price. So, I saved and saved and finally ordered it. Now that it's here I must say it's worth every penny. The workmanship and finish are superb. The one I received is more of a mahogany color than the one shown in the picture on the website and we LOVE it! Keep up the good work Wayan, the world needs more smiling and laughing sculptures!
Santa Rosa California United States
I have pruchased a few items from Wayan the first one everyone loved the craftsmanship so we purchased two more of te same items and presented them as wedding gifts. This person has made a lot of people smile with admiration with heir wounderful sculptures.
I saved my item that for Christmas morning and when I unwrapped it I was speechless. It is so beautiful and exudes love. This artisan is one of my favorites and this sculpture fits into my bedroom decorating scheme perfectly. I am glad I found Novica and Wayan Rendah. I know I will be purchasing more of his work, not only for myself but for others as gifts.
Absolutely Gorgeous statue....very pleased with all aspects of this transaction!
I love love LOVE the item I ordered, ""Family Love""!! It was a gift for my fiance, symbolizing him, myself, and our unborn child:) The packaging was phenomenol and it was pleasing to watch him unwrap each layer only to find another one beneath!! Thank you so much NOVICA.
Wow, stunning craftsmanship! Thanks very much!
I had purchased ""My Heart & Yours"" for my wife to celebrate our five year wedding anniversary. We have been together since 1997 and this carving symbolizes our union and love. Thanks for the beautiful work Wayan!
I am so glad to have this beautiful mask by Wayan Rendah. It is the most beautiful mask in my house, and also with a great meaning. I will try to purchase more art from this undoubtedly accomplished artist. Thank you!
I have a number of beautiful pieces from this artist. I love them all. My favorite is the ""graceful dancer"". I never seen anything more beautiful in my life. This is the prettiest thing I have in my house. I wish I would have known about Novica when they first started. I'm so happy to be a customer. Thank you, Connie
I love my cobra statuette. According to Chinese Astrology, I was born in the year of the snake. I'd been looking for a totem, a symbol, of some kind to place upon my altar. I wanted a power piece--and Rendah's work inspired me. I don't normally have animals of any kind on my altar. But I felt compelled to buy this beautiful piece. The cobra feels alive to me. Every guest has admired it. When my package arrived, I told myself that if I opened the beautifully wrapped package, and didn't instantly LOVE the sculpture, I'd return it. I fell in love. The cobra sculpture has a permanent place on my altar. Peace to you Rendah. May blessings flow to you and your family.
I purchased the flute player, and janger dancer. The most beautiful things in my home! Had holiday company, and after the guests saw the carvings, they ordered the larger size janger dancer. The pieces are extremely elegant and rich with spiritual detail. What took an extrordinarily long time and careful concentration has been enjoyed by many, and will be, for a long time to come. Sincere thanks and appreciation for your God given talent. Thanks so much, Mr. Rendah Patty Donohue
My daughter and her husband loved your carving ""love is eternity"" which I gave them for an anniversary present. marian hilton
Just received figure of a Meditating Man, it looked good in the photo on this website but was even better when I received it. Excellant!! C.T., Northwood, UK
I am so impressed with the sculpture I purchased from Wayan Rendah. So well made. What craftsmanship. I look forward to making purchases in the future. It came so beautifully wrapped. I highly recommend this artist. Thank you so much.
Loved the pieces I ordered so much that I had to order more, truly more beautiful then appears on line! Thank you so much!
The mask I ordered was so breath taking, I had to order another! Beautiful!
I received my Cobra pose & Levitation pose sculptures & they were beautiful beyond my expectations! So beautifully & painstakingly wrapped, as well! I have them displayed on my mantel, & they immediately added a serene feeling to the room. Thank you so much, Wayan! Very good work! Namaste.
Dear Wayan Rendah, The Sitting Buddha that was a gift for a friend of mine, and the Blessing Buddha a special gift for me, are exquisite representations of Lord Buddha. We are deeply touched by so much beauty. Thank you so much Wayan Rendah for sharing with us your exquisite carving skills on this beautiful crocodile wood. Both Buddhas arrived in a few days elegantly and delicately packed with a note about you. We both felt so special! C & C from France
Grand Rapids, Michigan, U.S.A.
The suar wood sculpture ""Lost in Thought"" by artist Wayan Rendah is a beautiful work of art. It portrays the graceful form of a seated man deep in thought. It is prominently displayed in my living room and I absolutely love it. Thank you Wayan for creating such wonderful works of art and sharing them with the world. -Gordon from Grand Rapids, Michigan, U.S.A.
Mr. Rendah, I received your beautiful carving titled ""Sensuous Dreams"" and it was even more exquisite in person than when I first fell in love with it on ebay. I just wanted to share with you how much I love this piece that you created and how much I look forward to getting to know the other pieces of art in your portfolio. I've always loved the natural beauty of wood and I've actually done a little bit of carving myself although I mostly stick to two dimensional pieces as I am an artist that mainly creates drawings(pen & ink, pencil, colored pencil), paintings (oil and acrylic), and collage. What I have seen of your work so far is really fantastic. It's very well executed and has a wonderful sensuous flow of biomorphic shapes and lines. Truly stunning stuff. Your meticulous attention to detail and your particular choice of shapes and design is very much appreciated as I am an artist who also holds these qualities dear to my heart. I can truly appreciate your obvious love of nature and art and all the beauty that is inherent in both. I'm excited to find the perfect place to hang your stunning piece so that it can be fully enjoyed by everyone who enters my home. I love in particular the hidden figure of the woman intertwined in the surreal, lyrical, and somewhat abstract design of the face. The shapes and lines are so soft and inviting and the play of thick to thin areas of wood along with the negative space create a truly mesmerizing and sensuously mysterious piece. Even the slight variation in color of this wonderfully glowing brown natural wood add to the piece. I was also impressed not only with the detail and variety of the carving but also in the finishing of the wood. It has a wonderfully smooth soft feel to it. Clearly I cannot say enough about this piece! Keep up the great work Mr. Rendah and I look forward to getting to know your body of work as well as seeing what you create in the future. With kindest regards, Chris Talbot USA
Hello Wayan Rehdah, I wanted to let you know that your Eagle sculptures are incredible. They are beautiful and they have emotion. My company is Whirley-DrinkWorks! and we have purchased several of your Eagle sculptures over the past 8 years. We use them for an award we give at our annual Rep Meeting called the Shawn Watson Spirit Award which is in memory of a man who was one of our Sales Reps, but he did very special things for people. He did it anonymously. He also was a fun loving, happy, grateful man that lived life to his fullest. At his funeral there was a giant tree with an Eagle nest in it that included babies. We took it as a sign and created the Spirit Award and that it should always be an Eagle Sculpture. Everyone that has received one accepts it proudly and displays it in there offices or homes. Thank you so much for your beautiful and artistic eye. Gladys Reid-Nelson
I ordered the ""Together Forever"" statue as a gift to my husband. It is beautiful, and is the perfect symbol of how close we are.
I purchased a wooden sculpture that Wayan made - the quality of the carving and the delicate details are truly impressive. He is a very talented artist and I am grateful to have found Novica and having been able to discover his art. Thank you Wayan!
I received my beautiful statuette, ""Prayer,"" and it is exceptional. The artistry is elegant and peaceful while uplifting at the same time. The wood is absolutely gorgeous. I could not be happier, and I'm so grateful for your talent. Thank you so much!!!

I ordered Item 49641 ""Tiling"" - Hand carved floral wood jewelry boxes - Set of 3 - in October 2014, as a 4th wedding anniversary (wood) for my younger son & daughter-in-law, and had the item shipped directly to them in New York. I haven't seen the gift in person, but they have both told me they are really beautiful. They truly appreciated the gift and have told me on a number of occasions how well made and intricately carved they are. Thank you Mr. Rendah for your talent and artistic expression.
Thank You, Wayan!! My ""Cobra Pose"" Statuette is totally an awesome piece of your work. I look forward to seeing and purchasing more yoga poses in the future. A beautiful and perfect Cobra pose. I love it and will recommend to others!!!

Received the Wood statuette ""together forever"". I ordered it for my 5th wedding anniversary. It is so beautiful, I can't express in word. My husband loves it so much and decided to keep it in his office cabin. I am so happy to but it. It is more beautiful in real. Thank you Wayan for this wonderful Wood statuette. I love your works.
I was amazed how fast and efficient you were in getting my 'Bonds of the Heart"" to me. You kept me informed of delivery date as well as letting me know what was happening. The"" Bonds of the Heart"" arrived yesterday and is beautiful. It will be a very fitting wedding gift for my friends. Thank you for the excellent service and prompt arrival of this beautiful gift. I will definitely purchase other items from you. Your work is superb and the appreciation you gave was wonderful ! Rene Venen
Love-Love your beautiful wood carvings. I Have ordered ""5"" of the ""Heart Bond"" wooden sculptures. The Heart Bond has sooo much meaning and where it comes from is even more wonderful. Thank you for your talent in giving us your beautiful wooden carvings. Rene' Venen
Another great and beautiful mask. I am so impressed with the quality and craftsmanship. I received my mask earlier then predicted with beautiful free inside gift wrapping, so beautiful I had to take a picture before opening the wrapping. I can't wait to have people see this mask in my home. An added beauty to my mask collection.
I love this piece! The packaging was gorgeous, and packed so very carefully, it was very secure. The sculpture's wood was a brilliant color and it fits so perfectly in our apartment. Thank you!

FINDING YOUR SIZE
Take your measurements with the tape measure over your under garments. If your measurements fall between sizes you may prefer the next larger size. Inseam, skirt and dress lengths vary by style and will be listed in the item description. Our sweaters are knit in standard American sizes, however actual measurements vary by style.
BUST / CHEST
Measure around the fullest part of chest under the arms and over the shoulder blades keeping the tape measure level.
Measure around the smallest part of the waist keeping the tape measure comfortably loose. Most garments use the low waist measurement noted below.
Measure around the body approximately 1.5" below the natural waist (above). This is the area where most pants and skirts actually fit.
Standing with your heels together, measure around the fullest part of the body approx 7"-8" below the waist.
Measure around the base of the neck keeping the tape measure comfortably loose.
Bend elbow slightly and starting at the center back of the neck, measure across the shoulder, to the elbow and down to the wrist.

How has NOVICA revolutionized the way you purchase fine handmade products?

By working directly with artists through our regional sourcing offices, NOVICA is able to skip a few links in the traditional supply chain.
NOVICA Golden Rule #1:
Artisans make more with NOVICA than through traditional channels
One of the major benefits to the NOVICA global system is that artists can now focus on creating higher quality items and unique designs rather than large quantities of more mass produced products. This means that through NOVICA you can access the highest quality one-of-a-kind items at incredibly attractive prices.
