Fair Trade! A hummingbird takes flight, abandoning its perch on a jungle leaf. This hand-carved design in suar wood creates a clever puzzle box. Four pieces fit together smoothly to conceal the contents within the small inner compartment.
Wood grain and color can vary slightly.
Original Artisan Story:
I am Eka, and I was introduced to working with the fair trade and non-profit company, Novica by my husband Putra Suteja. Unfortunately, he passed away in 2009 after a long illness, leaving me with a three-year-old daughter and a ten-day-old son. I decided to honor his memory by continuing carving, something I learned from my father from a very young age. Dad would carve and my mother, brothers and I would finish the statues. We worked this way until I married Putra Suteja.
He liked to carve coconut shells and we enjoyed developing new styles and designs together, then I would make the samples. Now that I'm the sole provider for my children, I continue to carve coconut shells, and I also carve sculptures from wood.
My children are my biggest motivation to work and to move on. Even though now I am alone, I always keep my spirit up and go on strong for my children. Thanks to them I do not falter, and thanks to all of you for always supporting me.
Being associated with you means I can feed my children – I will always do my best to provide a good future for them. Thanks to you all, because you encourage me to continue developing new ideas and designs for the sculptures so they will be always liked.
