ConstructionThree piece wood
OwnerDavid Hall

This mandala took years of patience to get into production. The Batik was an original design my Oke Rosgana of Indonesia, in the traditional Batik art style of his homeland. We tried to get these made back in 2006, wanting them to be a final special release for my store, Dave's Skill Toys. But Tom Kuhn was out of No Jive parts and not in production at the time. Final negotiation led to the first release of the No Jive 3 ball bearing model, with a quick redesign of the art by Oke.

The original art stayed on my computer drive until 2013, when the opportunity to produce them finally was a reality.

The reverse burn version is a black and white reversal of the primary artwork. That is the laser burns only the areas untouched in the standard release.

Only 15 of these were made in the butterfly configuration, so these are a very VERY limited edition mandala from Tom Kuhn. Made for my personal use while the standard version was in production.
