Stone Depot uses Bali stone carving as one of their projects in Indonesia and around the globe. Bunaken Oasis Resort and Spa in Manado is one example.
Bali stone carving is an essential art-form for these people of The Island of The Gods. The stone carving artwork is in many forms, like deities, demons, giant frogs, rearing stallions, and many more. You can see all the great examples from the existing workshops to the airport in Denpasar. Traditionally, Balinese stone carvers produce these stone sculptures for the gateways of the temples and the palace. According to them, gateways are the transitional forms between the inner and outer worlds. You can see that most entrances in Balinese houses, offices, or restaurants have these sculptures.
Many of these Bali stone carving statues are in the form of demons. As scary as the idea seems, these stone demons are placed for maintaining security and warning visitors to behave well once they are inside the property. The material for this stone-carving artwork is called ‘paras’. Although it looks heavy on the outside, it is more like pumice. Since this material weathers quickly in the tropical climate, the statues have to be replaced regularly. The humidity also causes moss to grow quickly and easily on the Balinese, stone-carving statues.
