|Statues at Zakia's in Lovina's Kaliasem|
We have two weeks for finishing Villa Cengkeh. The necessary ceremonies are scheduled for 21 May which is a very auspicious day in the Balinese calendar and not to be missed. It is working 7 days/week now.
As workers are doing touch-up on the paint, floors and walkways, others are installing furniture such as the locally build beds, wardrobes and kitchen cabinets. Most of those are in and yesterday the appliances were placed in the kitchen.

We have also been shopping for some items such as statues for the garden and paintings. Last Tuesday we made a trip to Ubud, the artistic center of Bali. While there are many art studios and galleries there, the traffic is horrendous and it is very difficult to get around.
The statues shown above are going to go on the pool patio as guardians. They originated from a Hindu temple that was renovated. I found an old buddha statue in green stone in a place near Ubud. We have acquired some interesting Timorese wooden statues for both the garden and the living room in shops in Denpasar. I'll provide photos of these once they are in place.
