Nyoman Tjokot, born in 1886 in Banjar Jati, Sebatu, Tegalalang, Gianyar, Bali, was a unique sculptor. He creatively used discarded logs and tree roots found in rivers. Tjokot carved these woods intuitively, following their natural grooves. His resulting sculptures were seen as unusual, eccentric, and even absurd for their time. They were rough in texture, reflecting his honest artistic spirit. This distinctive style led to the creation of the "Tjototisme" school, now continued by his descendants. Tjokot gained international recognition, especially in the United States during the 1960s, where he was considered a maestro of sculpture. The Indonesian government recognized his contributions in 1969 with the Wijaya Kusuma Art Award. Tjokot passed away in October 1971.
