The gallery that this family has created is amazing! It became one of our favorite places to visit while staying in Ubud. This is a family of highly talented mask makers, carvers, and painters--all of the 12 members of the Sutarja family are so gifted, and each have their own style. They are all represented here on the walls of... More

Set amongst beautiful gardens this is a most interesting place to visit. A little out of the way but worth the effort. Should be seen by more people.
