I posted already about Folkart Gallery. This museum/shop has a substantial collection of museum quality antique art. I’ll post again because the collection is amazing and very interesting. If I go to the shop, Linda Bennett, one of the owners, tells me the stories behind the collection. She knows all about each item in the shop by name and history.
Folkart Gallery Bali is located at Jl Oberoi 17B, Seminyak.
