Art is a huge part of the Indonesian culture and you will notice different forms of art all around Jakarta. Local carvings are a very thoughtful gift to bring home as you will literally be bringing home an authentic piece of Indonesian art.

A great suggestion for a gift is an authentic and unique mask, made entirely out of carved wood. You could also choose a unique piece which may represent something significant from the culture, an ornament of sorts which would look ideal in a home or garden.

There are many designs, shapes, sizes and various qualities to choose from. You can have quite an exciting time picking and choosing, while learning all about the culture and traditions.

Great gifts for all those people who are a bit “odd” or “different” who you may struggle to find gifts for. You could buy an ideal carving to use as an ornament or even for a desk. These make perfect gifts for your dad, uncle,brother and male co-workers.

Manageable to hard to manage.

A wood mask is sold at the price of from $2 to $5.
