Nengah's story

Nengah is an artisan from Indonesia who specializes in hand-carved wood art. He would like to invest in a bulk purchase of wood and other raw materials.

Nengah has been selling through NOVICA since 2004. This is his story:

"From an early age I loved natural things: plants, animals, birds or sea life. When I was still quite young I knew I had an ability to translate nature into artful things of beauty. Although I have no formal art training and work purely from my own inspiration and intuition, I know what looks good and what doesn't look right in a carving. I particularly want to create wildlife and other animal themes in an exact, realistic and original way.

"Thank you so much for helping me funding my business. Your help also means a lot to my workers cause it means I can keep them employed. I hope God will bless us with health."
