One rainy afternoon in Bali, Bu Yana and Pak Anis walked into our office. And we couldn't be happier that they did. They have introduced us to their amazing stone craft work, based on wooden and stone statues that are traditionally used in Sumbanese daily life and rituals. Bu Yana and pak Anis were born and raised in Sumba, an Indonesian island about 900km east from Bali, but they have lived in Bali since the year 2001. The statues they make are not only aesthetically pleasing works of art, they also represent the pride felt by Bu Yana, Pak Anis and their family. With their work the artisans aim to present Sumbanese culture and heritage to the world, while inspiring young generations to keep the Sumbanese traditions alive. Traditionally wooden and stone statues are used a lot in Sumbanese life and architecture. The statues represent spirits that are prayed to in order to ensure protection of the house, fertility, smooth harvest, health, etc, etc.

The statues created by the family in Bali are small versions based on the original designs that are used in Sumba, but meant for home/villa decoration purposes. Therefore, the designs are not always exact copies of the statues in Sumba, but they are adjusted accordingly.

In the current collection there are two color variations: cream and grey. Cream is the natural color of the stone, while grey is created by dipping the statues in a bath of natural dyes.

Please note that color variations and "imperfections" may occur, these will not be considered defects, but they are part of each unique product. Also, given that the statues are all carved by hand, slight variations in the designs and measurements are common, and will not be considered rejects.
