Nengah's story

Nengah is a Balinese artisan who specializes in hand-carved wood animal sculptures. He would like to invest in the purchase of larger quantities of wood so that he can increase production.

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

"From an early age I loved natural things: plants, animals, birds, and 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 for your support through this microcredit. For me it means an opportunity to continue making my business grow, so many thanks to you all!"
