Tips for you
We went to Sila Galery Mas Carving center on Dec 7th, 2015. I was immediately amazed by one of the workers who was engrossed in his wood carving work. The host who greeted our arrival, was very friendly and knowledgeable about the wood carving process. Upon entering the gallery, my husband and I were astonished by the varieties of wood work on display. They were statues of animals and human anatomy, dolls and 'magic boxes' and etc. Some were quite pricey, so be prepared to haggle a bit. I bought a dandy, magic box which cost RP 350K (US $25) as a memorable souvenier for myself.
