Wood-carving has a long history in Indonesia, using locally-grown teak trees. Teak is a tropical hardwood that is slow-growing and therefore, very strong, making it more difficult to carve than other woods. For centuries, this wood has been used to carve masks worn during ceremonial dances and performances. This practice continues today, along with the addition of more contemporary uses of teak.
