Details

Hand-carved with sublime detail from crocodile wood, this most captivating jewelry box features a scene from the famed Hindu epic Ramayana. Wayan Rendah uses the white grain of crocodile wood to depict a chapter in the lives of Rama and his beloved wife Sita. Rendah then embellishes the piece with oil paints and gold leaf accents.

In the Ramayana, Rama was sent into exile to live in a forest, and his wife Sita followed him. Meanwhile, Rahwana the evil king of Alengka, was enchanted by the beauty of Sita, and wanted to have her as his concubine. He sent one of his most trusted knights, Marica, to tempt Sita by transforming himself into a golden deer. Sita was taken by her curiosity and asked Rama to catch the golden deer. Rama marked a magic circle in the ground for protection, warning Sita to stay within it while he was away looking for the deer. Rahwana then appeared in the form of an old beggar enticing Sita to leave the circle, and the evil king promptly kidnapped her. Many subsequent chapters in the Ramayana tell of Rama's adventures as he tries to rescue his wife.
