Masks and Puppets for Ritual & Sacred Performances

First in a Monthly Series on Balinese Culture

Masks and puppets for ritual and sacred performances are more than just carved pieces of wood and chiseled leather. In Bali, they are respected and honored every 210 days with offerings and prayers to fortify their powers and make sure that they protect the community. This talk will introduce some of these beliefs and practices that are so important to the Balinese.
