Woodcarving Workshop at I Made Ada Gallery

Woodcarving Workshop at I Made Ada Gallery

Pak Made Ada is a third-generation master carver specialising in ornate wooden Garuda statues and traditional panelling. His metres-high pieces, which have inspired craftspeople across the island, are displayed in various palaces, having been commissioned by Indonesia’s longest-running head of state, President Suharto.

His remarkable talent has attracted international acclaim as well—he travelled to Germany, the USA and Russia to share his work with the likes of Barack Obama, Vladimir Putin and Ronald Reagan.
