Bali Stone Carvings

Bali is paradise with lush green rice paddies, fabulous culture, steaming volcanoes, beautiful beaches, friendly people and the most amazing stone carvings. The statues are lurking around every corner, tucked into nooks and crannies where ever possible.

The statue styles vary as much as the landscape of this tropical island. The forms range from artful to creepy or obscene to spiritual. Mold and moss cover the statues adding to their character as they stand guard outside of temples or in gardens. I took hundreds of pictures of the cold gray pieces of stone carved into lifelike works of art.  These are just a few of my favorites.

    I used to have a neighbor who landscaped his yard to look like Bali. Statues and Bali plants and all!
