In a special exhibition showcasing the beautyâ€”and necessityâ€”of Indonesian natural resources, Como Hotels and Resorts is installing artist MickaĂ«l ObrĂ©novitchâ€™s â€śHuman Rootsâ€ť sculpture exhibition on its Como Shambhala Estate and Uma by Como, Ubud properties. Inspired by the idea of the Indonesian rain forest being the lung of Asia, French-born artist ObrĂ©novitch crafted 200-year-old Javanese teak wood into graceful, complex sculptures reminiscent of the vital breathing organ that will be staged throughout the interiors and exteriors of the twoÂ grounds. The sculptures are available for purchase as a way to raise money for rain forest preservation, and an opening charity dinner including canapĂ©s, drinks, live music, and a three-course meal hosted at the Uma Ubudâ€™s new Uma Cucina Italian restaurant on July 18 will send a quarterÂ of its proceeds to preservation causes as well. The sculptures will be on display for hotel guests as well as the public between July 18 and October 18 in Umaâ€™s wellness sanctuary, pool bar, lobby, and Cucina restaurant, and at the Shambhala Estate, in the lobby, tea house, and Ojas lounge.
