Wood Carving

Bali is also home to incredible wood carvers. And not all Asian idols. This dining ensemble is incredibly intricate and would grace a formal dining hall anywhere.

Chisels and knives flash at high speed in the workshop as we watched half a dozen artists carving new works. Wood chips literally sailed thru the air as the wooden mallets applied just the right touch and force to remove the unwanted material to reach a deity, animal, bird, maiden, or other subject beneath. In lean-to areas beside small homes the individual would be likewise engaged in pursuit of income.

Staggering to my mind that so many posses such talent.
