The popularity of Made Ada artwork because of its quality and price makes it impossible to keep all items available at all time in stock. Made insists on only producing art that is worth putting his name and reputation on it. Although the Made Ada Art Gallery makes attempts to keep a variety of stock on hand it is impossible to keep every item on hand. For this reason purchasing Made's Artwork is best done through email orders or personal visits are welcomed. Woods that are used for Made Ada artwork consist of Teak, Balinese Jack, Ebony, Suar, Marbao, and Sandal Wood. Other woods are available for special orders. These woods can be polished and kept with natural wood finishes or painted. Paints used are of the best quality and will withstand many years of heavy weathering without fading. 22-karat gold paint and gold leaf are also available and used frequently. Prices vary slightly with the cost of raw materials and amount of labor involved in production. Pictured here are just a few of the artwork available through Made Ada Art Gallery. Prices are approximations and may vary slightly.
