About Balinese ArtDeco statues:
After tourism to Bali started in 1930, the demand for sculptures and drawings from this region increased. Until well after the Second World War, beautiful sculptures were made in the art deco style in Bali. In the west, the Art Deco period formally ends in 1940. Balinese sculptors, on the other hand, continued to work in this style after the war, making them difficult to date. These images were also rarely signed.
