Why this is a
Masterpiece

The sculpture is rather unique because of its delicacy and refinement. The depiction of the Goddess of Earth and the snake is unusual.

History of the Object
Ida Bagus Nyana was a talented wood sculptor and a gifted dancer. He is known for his impressionistic, elongated woodcarvings whose fluid shapes are devoid of excessive detail. His sculpture of the Goddess Pertiwi (Mother Earth), with its spidery legs and coiled serpant, is dreamlike and surrealistic.
