Customer Reviews of Ketut Taram
I ordered one of Ketut Taram's "Baby Dragon" figurines for the 2012 Year of the Dragon. I opened it yesterday and it far exceeds my expectations. Not only is the carving and the wood itself gorgeous, but the dragon's head is 10x better than it looks in the picture. I am extraordinarily impressed with Mr. Taram's work and very highly recommend it to anyone even considering purchasing works of this nature from Bali. Thank you, Mr. Taram, for making such beautiful art! Very best wishes to you, your wife and child. :-) Julianna Hinckley Seattle, WA USA
