In English

Master Balinese woodcarver Ida Bagus Njana (1912-1985). Njana's  family descends from Dang Hyang Nirartha, the saint of Balinese Hinduism, who moved to Bali in the 1500s and spread his religious reforms by travelling around the island. In the village of Mas, the local headman gave him one of his daughters. Their son from his marriage, Ida Putu Mas, started the Brahmana Mas line.  Like their ancestors, the Mas Brahmins became priests or, like Njana, woodcarvers and architects.
