"Supported by my relatives and friends, I created and sold my own artworks at the age of 14."
"My name is Nyoman Sedayatana. I was born in Bali on July 8, 1970. I come from a family of artists, such as traditional gamelan music players, dancers, and carvers. I never stop thinking about how lucky I am to have skill and be born in Bali. As we know, Bali is well known as a world of paradise and art, a place where I can practice arts without any difficulty.
"Supported by my relatives and friends, I created and sold my own artworks at the age of 14. From the beginning until now I've concentrated on making wooden carvings like statuettes and antique furniture. For my statuettes, unlike common wooden statuettes made by other artists, most of my products require two finishing processes. After carving the details, the first finishing process is to refine it, which won't change the color. The next step of finishing is to color the sculpture using oil paints."
"Once people see my artwork, they will notice the strong spirit of Balinese figures in each of the statuettes. Those figures I carve are Balinese dancers, gods and goddesses, Balinese men and women, and much more."
I just received my package from Bali. I was breathless when I opened it. I Nyoman Sedayatana'a attention to detail and the flow of his lines is amazing. He is an amazing artist and you should all buysome of his work :) Once again I would like to thank Novica for gathering together these amazing artists and making their work available to us here in the States. I will definitely be making a trip to Bali in the near future and all this art work I have bought from their amazing artists makes me look even more forward to our trip. Thanks again.
She was packaged so beautifully, that I hesitated to open the box, but when I did and very carefully took her out, she is breathtaking. The piece I recieve is absolutely exquisite. She has wonderful detail. I purchased this piece because in my eyes she is offering supplications to buddha. Thank you for sharing your talent and offering such wonderful pieces. Warmest regards and blessings on you and your family. Margaret

Dear Novica: I just received my Balinese hand-carved statuettes made by my new favorite artist Nyoman Sedayatana. Words cannot describe how I felt when I opened my beautiful package. I was so pleased with my purchase that I bought a second statuette for my sister’s birthday. Thanks for making such beautiful art work available to me. This has been more than a purchase, it has been an experience. Sincerely, Irina Araujo
A truly beautiful work by a genuine master. My wife and I treasure it as an expression of our love. It's clear that a lot of love went into its making. Thank You!
I purchased a statuette for my sister's birthday and I was blown away by the beauty and detail of it. My whole family was fascinated by it and my sister loved it!
I purchased a Ganesha which was hand carved and hand painted by Mr. Sedayatana. First the packaging was superior and the gift wrapping a beautiful suprise. It in no way prepared me for the absolutely lovely contents. Mr. Sedayatana is a fabulous artist, eveyone who has come in contact with the Ganesha wants to hold him and he is so wonderful I can not resist sharing him with everyone. Thank you Mr. Sedayatana for creating such a beautiful Ganesha, he sits in a place of honor as he should.
WOW! I received my sculpture by Nyoman and it's beauty took my breath away! The attention to detail and pattern is stunning. It is a focal point of that room and I thank you for your talent! Blessings to you and your family! Thank you,
I want to thank you for the beautiful sculptures ""Two Young Men Praying."" I admire the simplicity and elegance you have given them, and the beauty of your careful finishes and painting. But these things along do not account for what you have created from two small pieces of wood. You have, I believe, that gift that good artists have of instilling grace, spirit and meaning into their work. These two small figures speak to me, clearly, of the peace and beauty I have found in your island from my first visit 30 years ago. Thank you so very much! With regards, and best wishes for your future.
Nyoman's sculptures are absolutely gorgeous! The beauty and serenity of my statuette took my breath away. He is an exceptionally skilled and detailed oriented sculpturer. I recommend any of his work to everyone. You will not be disappointed!
I received your praying statue of a couple and I am very very happy and pleased with the product. The detail and workmanship of this carving is incredible. I am going to show it off to friends and relatives. Thank you very much, Warmest regards, Kristie Franklin
Nyoman Sedayantana's work is exquisite! I received my 'Resting Rama & Sita' several weeks ago and was awed by the craftsmanship. This piece has a life all its own and projects an aura of peace and beauty. I will definitely be adding more of his work to my collection.
Absolutely fabulous and breathtaking!!!
BEAUTIFUL WORK! GREAT ACCENTS FOR ANY HOME.THANK YOU AND KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK.
Just received my package from Bali!!! I'm delighted with such a fine piece of art!! specially I'm in love w/your Ngaruda bird, which I've been looking for for many years, my first encounter w/Balinese art dates back to the early sixties, a booklet named ""arts and crafts in Indonesia"" which impressed me profoundly, maybe because my great grand father arrived from Indonesia about 120 years ago, though when I see this piece of art, something whisper on my ears, thank you for your good work!. sincerely Alex
I purchased your statues ""Women Praying"" more than a year ago, and love them still. The quality and workmanship is wonderful and they are a beautiful example of women. Thank you for bringing this to us
Nyoman, After unwrapping ""Conch Shell Song"", I was speechless!! I was overwhelmed by the beauty of this wood sculpture. You are a master sculptor. The painting on the sculpture is beautiful and adds to the perfection of the piece. I am very proud to display this sculpture in my home. Many thanks. Sincerely,
I loved the ""Woman in prayer"" sculpture the moment I saw it. I had never been on Novica.com, before, nor was I familiar with it. The more time I spent on the site and learning about it's mission and the artists, the more excited I became about the art and the artists. My daughter, and I, spent a great deal of time looking at pieces in all of the categories and I just kept coming back to this beautiful sculpture. As soon as I ordered it I was SO excited and looking forward to receiving it. The package arrived just two days before my 40th birthday and the wrapping was so lovely I couldn't bring myself to open. I set it near my fireplace and saved it to open on my birthday. The little doll on the outside of the package is adorable and when I, finally, did unwrap the package I made sure to save her! The sculpture was even more beautiful than I imagined she would be! My husband, my daughter and I all think she is amazing and she, now, resides in a special place in my ""quiet room"" where she brings a peaceful beauty. Thank you so much!!!!!!
Dear Nyoman Sedayatana, I have just received my Garuda statue and I am delighted. The quality of the carving and painting is excellent; lovely attention to detail. Thank you very much. My best regards, Cheryl.
Just opened the package from Novica. ""Woman at Prayer"" is breathtaking. I love the detailed work and the daintiness of the woman. I bought this for my office, but might have to get another for my bedroom. Love this! Thank you Nyoman!!
