Seminyak might look and be all too commercial these days but there are some secret gems that would blow you away – you just need to know which door to pull. FolkArt gallery is definitely one of those places.
At first, the cute little bling-bling gonna get your eye: elegant brass earrings, chunky rings with semi-precious gemstones and all that glitters. As you move around, touching-feeling the jewelry, the space kind of drags you in and at some point you find yourself in museum of textile, small décor objects, puppets, accessories from all over the world, from Mexico to Japan. Antique treasures: Burmese medicine box, small altar from Japan, Buddhas of all sides and origins…and almost any of those can become yours. If investing into 19th century item is not your agenda of a day, you can have great fun choosing inexpensive and colorful souveniers, as they have plenty. Don’t be surprised if you’ll spend a good hour in this gallery: if you love all things folklore, this is gonna be your candy shop. It’s simply impossible to leave without checking every corner of this space! Take your time, it’s worth it.
