Desa Mas ( Mas Village )
Home of Wood carving and Stone Masterpiece
Bali Mas Village is one of the villages in Bali that is mostly recognized as an artistic countryside that focuses on wood carving. Mas Village lies in the east of Bali, in the Ubud subdistrict and Gianyar Regency. It owns the traditional wood carving art form by emphasizing the distinct synergy of humanism and naturalism. The hamlet's reputation as a wood carving art village is well-known on a national and international level, not to mention the highness of several maestros who have borne and discovered the spirit (taksu) and soul. The late Ida Bagus Nyana and her son, Ida Bagus Tilem,
are well-known wood carvers in this area. We may locate a number of art businesses along the road that sell a variety of wood carvings. We can also observe ricefields on the left or right side of the road, implying that the Mas people live not just as wood carvers but also as farmers. Every day, a large number of visitors come to this town to see or buy wood carvings and to learn how to make wood carvings from the locals.
