Details

This beautiful doll bears a story on her lovely face. Gusti Ngurah Semarajaya paints a scene from the Calonarang, which tells the story of Rangda, mother of Erlangga who ruled Bali in the 10th century. Condemned for practicing black magic, she summoned evil spirits to fight Erlangga, and her powers were so strong, he was forced to ask Barong for aid. Eventually the evil Rangda was defeated.

Semarajaya sculpts the elegant head, hands and feet from crocodile wood and dresses her in handloomed ikat cloth. The word means "to knot" in the Malaysian language, and the threads are tie-dyed before weaving.

The doll can be posed in a variety of positions. Semarajaya suggests it can be displayed alone or on a base such as a drinking glass.

I collect dolls, and this beautiful, carved and painted doll is the newest and most unique doll in my collection. A friend saw mine and couldnt stop talking about how much she loved it, so I ordered one for her for Christmas. Cant wait to see the look in her eyes when she opens it!

Beautifully made, he has the most serene expression. An impulse purchase that I have no regrets at all about. If you are considering getting anything from this artist, do it.

I have three different painted boxes from this artist. They catch my eye when I walk past. The colors, the scene, and the unique box shapes.
