In this article, you can some great examples of Balinese Ogoh-Ogoh figures. As well as some background information about the origin and purpose of this wonderful Balinese tradition.
Once a year in the Balinese calendar the youth of an area in Gianyar regency come together in a temple to celebrate a ‘festival of colors’. Not just any colors, but colors put onto their bodies. It’s a bit carnival and a bit religious festival. See the photographs of Ngerebek here.
During a recent visit to Kaoshiung – Taiwan I had the privilege to photograph some of the most beautiful temples I have ever seen.
