Stock photo of the Beastly figure of Rangda demon queen surrounded by holy men during a Temple parade at the Pengerbongan ceremony. The beastly figures of Rangda the evil demon queen and Barong the lion-like protector of the good are paraded around during the Sakral ritual at the Pengerebongan ceremony which sees hundreds of devotees taking part as spectators and participants. Rangda, Barong, women and men can be seen in a trance with the guys attempting to stab themselves during the self stabbing ritual. Fortunately there are rarely accidents as it would appear the flesh becomes mightier than the sword!
