Hand-carved Buddha from Bali

Wood carving is an art and skill that is taught to children from an early age in Bali.  Whole villages are dedicated to a particular craft, such as wood carving, or stone carving, or painting and so on.   Because of the lightness of the material, a hand-carved Buddha is one of the items that can travel home easily with visitors.  But for those of us who don't have travel to Bali in our near plans, we can still have an inspirational bit of Bali's spiritual art tradition in our home.

Stepping Stones Books and Gifts features beautiful art work from Bali and other places in the world.  From time to time we like to offer an item in a raffle and our current raffle features the beautiful Buddha carving in this photograph. 

Purchase raffle tickets in Stepping Stones Books and Gifts when you next visit the Center for Spiritual Living, Santa Rosa and you may be the new owner. 

Drawing to be held on Sunday July 24 at 1:00 pm.
