Item details

Lifted is a beautifully carved bone wing that could well serve to remind you of Coco Chanel's maxim: “If you were born without wings, do nothing to prevent them from growing.”

Be it a bird's wing or that of an angel, its appeal lies in the detail of its double-sided carving, done in the hands of Balinese artisan.

It's about 60mm in length and is not drilled. Please scroll through my photos to see both sides, and to get a better idea of the size.

The Balinese are masters of this craft, transforming natural materials such as bone, shell, horn and wood into extraordinary pieces of jewelry, ornaments and heirlooms.

AT A GLANCE
Size: Approx 60mm (L) x 19mm (W) – 2.36 inches (L) x 0.74in (W)
Thickness: Approx 3mm
Weight: 5 grams
Pieces per pack: 1
Colour: Off-white or ivory colour
Material: Bovine bone - cow bone, carved both sides, not drilled. Bone used in Indounik products is sourced from the neighbouring Indonesian island of Java and is a bi-product of the meat industry.
Shipping: This item will ship from Bali via Pos Indonesia registered mail, and you will almost certainly need to sign on delivery. I generally ship more quickly than than the 3-5 days listed in my shipping profile but sometimes need more time if it's rainy season or there are a lot of religious ceremonies.
Extra info: As these are handcarved, there may be slight variations between the piece you purchase and the one you see on your screen, especially when it comes to the placement of the feathers.

BACK STORY
If you love our feathered friends then you might like to visit the Bali Bird Park, home to one of the world's finest collections of Indonesian birds.

The park is set in two hectares of landscaped botanical gardens, including more than 2000 tropical plants.

The Park plays a key role in protecting and conserving Indonesia’s endangered birdlife, including the Bali starling.

The word for bird in Bahasa Indonesia, the language of Indonesia, is 'burung'.
