Raksasa Gallery: Fresh on our website (raksasamods.com), a turquoise maple stabwood “Octopus Love” hand carved by Balinese Master Carver Dewa K. Like a Raksasa, the Octopus is an expert magician, shape-shifter, and master illusionist with highly acute intelligence. There is more neural network lacing in the body of an Octopus than in their brain, leading scientists to call it a second brain. With such a complex nervous system, many speculate the Octopus has advanced extrasensory abilities beyond our current comprehension. When the environment changes, the octopus can change its RNA gene sequence to adapt. A documented seer of the future, the octopus remains elusive through unpredictability and creative strategy. Over 100 million years ago the Octopus branched from what became humans, but evolved into an equal or greater level of intelligence. In a dance of courtship, Octopuses bodies form one flowing stream of illumination, flashing between camouflage and color patterns entangled in tentacles or not. This magical synchronicity serves as inspiration to Balinese, as it represents harmony in unity, or the perfect union of love between two souls, no matter the distance apart. Seeking no godly fame for its diverse wisdom and mastery of the deep blue, the Octopus often lives in solitude in the shadows. “There is no greater love, than when two souls become one” says Master Carver Dewa K. Dewa’s personal mod is of the same design. When not carving incredibly detailed Raksasa Mods, Dewa sings prayers for his local Temple with a deep baritone voice that resonates across jungle canyons over a speaker. He explains that his mod is a reminder to always strive for the purest frequency of love when singing mantras of Balinese wisdom for his community. Ignite your spirit with Octopus Love.
