Bali Travel: An Artistic Day at Bidadari Art Gallery, Ubud

Hello everyone! Do you know that other than its gold and silversmiths, Ubud is also famous for its wood sculpture arts? We did not really know about this fact until we stepped inside one of the many art galleries in Ubud, Bidadari Art Gallery.

Oh wow, looks at that mask. Now, this will make a good accessories for a masquerade banquet, isn't it? =P

Bidadari Art Gallery functions as exhibition hall, art store and a sculpture workshop. We can see these men sculpturing the wooden statues.

You will really need both delicacy and accuracy when you are sculpturing a statue which has a lot of details.

In another room, we can see a lot of wooden mask and even wooden painting. These art pieces do not come cheap though as it needs a lot of preparation and skill to create one.
