Hand Carved Crocodile Wood

Buddha Dana – Small Natural by Ketut Dana. Buddha Dana is hand a carved sculpture of Buddha from Crocodile Wood by our wonderfully gifted Sculptor Ketut Dana.

Ketut Dana’s works have a tangible vibrating beauty. The artist’s singular and modest dedication for his creations is humbling and admirable. It is evident in Buddha Dana – Small Natural, the perfect balance of his lines and the subtlety of their curves. The work that we have before us is as close to elegant perfection that the hands can make. Sawidji Gallery is honoured to have the opportunity to bring Ketut Dana’s talents to the world.

Ketut Dana has an affinity with the Buddha as a subject. It is the artists’ self professed favourite shape to carve. When asked why this is his favourite,

I am happy making the Buddha statue. Perhaps because I learned this early from the very beginning. But once I heard a story about the Buddha. That he was a wealthy man. However, he wished to let go of everything worldly and wished to be one with God, that he wished to let go of everything. That is what I liked about it.

Crocodile Wood

Buddha Dana is carved out of Crocodile Wood. Crocodile Wood is also sometimes referred to as the Ivory of Woods because of the similarity of color and smooth finish of the two trees. Both yield surprisingly easy-to-carve wood of medium hardness. Crocodile wood is also interesting in that the heart is sometimes a stunning shade of purple
