Rama was a prince of a kingdom called Kosala, but he was unjustly accused and banished to the forest. His beautiful wife Sita insisted on sharing his exile. But Sita was spied by the demon Rawana and stolen away.
In despair Rama serched for her. Aided by the white ape Hanuman, Sita was discovered prisoner on the island of Lanka. After a mighty battle, Rawana was slain by Rama's magic arrow. The army of monkeys built a causeway of stones over the island and Sita was restored unharmed to her husband.
The RAMAYANA is an epic story from India that was brought to Indonesia 200 years ago with the Hindu religion.
It is a story of good triumphing over evil, and has been absorbed into almost every aspect of Indonesian culture, particularly in Jawa and Bali.
The Characters from the Ramayana embody traditional virtues, and reoccur throughout art, painting, batik, cavrving and dance.
These sandstone statues are hand carved by craftsmen, exactly as they have done for over a thousand years. They are strictly traditional representations of the Ramayana characters and of deities from the Hindu pantheon of gods.
Throughout Bali, island of a thousand temples, they are revered in shrines and gardens.
These sandstone statues can be placed both indoor & outdoor..
Ideal decoration for a water feature or by a swimming pool. But lovely as a feature piece inside as well.
