'To me, dragons symbolize the vigorous spirit of the Balinese people when facing adversity,' confides Seji Taram. Expert in the depiction of dragons, Taram depicts twin dragons under the yin-yang symbol of duality. He carves the suar wood wall panel with exquisite detailed artistry. According to one of the many Balinese Hindu-Buddhist customs, the dragon represents the relationship between kings and priests, and effigies of the mystical creature are included for their cremation, for it is believed Naga will guide their soul so they may find their way to the next world.
