This beautifully carved Rama and Sita statue is made of crocodile wood.

You can immediately see how the artist has succeeded in creating such precise details, at once dreamlike and realistic, as evidenced in the three dimensional crowns which adorn each of their heads.

Lord Rama is the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu.  Rama represents an ideal man.  In the story of Ramayana, Rama's personality depicts him as the perfect son, devoted brother, true husband, trusted friend, ideal king, and a noble adversary.  Rama is always ready to destroy evil and protect righteousness.  He is himself an embodiment of dharma.  Sita symbolizes an ideal daughter, wife, mother, and queen.  Whereas Rama symbolizes standards of perfection that can be conceived in all the facets of a man's life, mother Sita represents all that is great and noble in womanhood, the perfect embodiment of purity in thoughts, words, and deeds.  She is revered as an incarnation of Goddess Lakshmi, the divine consort of Lord Vishnu.

Crocodile Wood or Satin Wood; Zanthoxylum rhetsa:  The Indonesian name, panggal buaya, literally translates to crocodile teeth, referring to the knobby, tooth- shaped protrusions which cover the trunk.  Native to lowlands from India to the Philippines, crocodile wood is usually white in color, some pieces have narrow, dark stripes.  The heart is sometimes purple.  The grain is straight and easy to carve and the wood is of medium hardness. Older trees produce darker wood than younger ones and the higher up in the tree, the lighter the color. Crocodile wood is often called the ivory of woods because of its similar color and smooth finish.

This sculpture is entirely hand carved in Bali, Indonesia.  Every piece is truly unique!
