They do not actively carve any longer, some due to old age, others due to religious responsibilities as pemangku (priests) at their respective temples. The whereabouts of most of their works are not known; only a few are now special collections at the Bali Budaya Show Room.
Below are some Sumampan carvers who still actively produce their work:
De Widana (40)
Yan Raka (35)
De Kong (38)
There are indeed numerous productive carvers in Sumampan, but most of them work based on orders/ market demand, whereas true artists work according to their mood or feeling.
Most of the themes of Sumampan style statues are taken from shadow plays and old lontar (old manuscripts written on Palmyra palm leaves) privately owned by the carvers.
