  1. Oh, my gosh! Those statues are just amazing! I want one! And of course the batik speaks for itself. Such perfectly intricate work. I’m also really interested in the wax chunks in the bowls. I wonder what they’re using in their wax? Looks like maybe a beeswax/paraffin mix, but maybe heavier on the beeswax since it’s so dark.
