Mas Village is synonymous with wood carvings & sculptures. It is the wood carving capital of Bali. So, it is the perfect place to source for high quality wood carvings & great workmanship at affordable prices. There are many galleries & workshops offering interesting & unique works of art. However, the best times to pop in are usually from Monday til Saturday. You will be able to see the sculptors working diligently & attentively on small items right up to big bulky ones. Our tour agent brought us to a medium-size gallery. We were unlucky as all the wood carvers were taking a short break when we arrived. But we were shown a few wood types selected for carving. Not all wood can be carved on. Some are unsuitable for carving as they are brittle. We saw many interesting pieces in the shop. Amongst them were a beautifully carved door, intricate table designs, Buddha figurines & tree-root sculptures. There were also many masks for the face. Most are of the Barong creature & monstrous demons. We didn't purchase any souvenirs as we thought they were rather pricey & left shortly after bidding thank you to the host.

Sunday 8th September and we visited here, it was one of the stops on our "Bali Great Introduction Tour" which we booked through the Tui Representative at our Hotel. On arrival at Sari Pertiwi we were greeted and taken to an area were we saw the wood carvers in the various stages of producing the carvings. We were shown examples of the various wood used, the most interesting was the crocodile wood as the bark resembles crocodile skin. Once the demonstration was completed we were ushered into the showroom that was full of wood products ranging from furniture, religious figures, animals and so much more. The craftsmanship on some of the pieces was astounding. The Manager followed us around offering was "good price" we were offered 40% discount on all purchases. We had no intention of purchasing anything but we did appreciate the craftsmanship of some of the spectacular carvings on display.

We were taken to Mas Village by our driver on route to the sacred monkey forest. We were told the best and most skilled wood carvers would be found here and if I wanted something truly memorable and a one off piece of art, we should look here. We stopped at a grandmaster wood carver called Sari pertiwi where as we pulled in to the yard, I could see quite a few wood carvers chipping away at their creations. Immediately we were greeted by a young man who was very polite and started talking about the carver, the skill passed down by generations and the different types of wood used for the carvings. Crocodile wood or sandlewood seemed to be the best quality but mahogany was also very good. I was quite interested but also very aware of the sale that was going on. I didn’t mind though as I had already made up my mind that I wanted to find a piece of art to take home. He introduced me to the grandmaster and showed me his work that he had just taken over 2 months to complete. I was intrigued by the detail of this carving and it was from the favoured white crocodile wood. I decided that I would try and purchase this but not until I had taken a tour around the workshop and gallery where there were lots of other different works of art on display. I negotiated a price approx 1/3rd of the asking price, that I thought was fair for both of us and left feeling happy that I had helped contribute to this persons livelyhood which will enable this skill to continue to be passed down. Equally I had found something truly unique. A great experience.. If this is the sort of thing your after.

We went to Mas Carving Center based on recommendations from our hotel as well as our driver. The center has a good collection. However, we found the prices on the higher side as compared to smaller shops a short distance away. The quality at Mas was better as compared to some other places we visited though.

Dewa Malen in Mas, Beware. Even with a bill of sale and a shipping agreement, price to include shipping to our city of residence, they only shipped to LA, did not deny the terms but did nothing to get the item to our city of residence. We wound up paying 34% over agreed price just to avoid further charges. They were cordial, but evasive and likely never intended to keep the agreement. We were taken to Dewa Malen Woodcarving in Mas by a driver from Royal Kamuela Villas, which also was of no help. Tried repeated emails, documentation and phone calls. Have shipped internationally without problems before.
