Stock Photo Description
Stock photo of a piece of Folklore from Bali with Rangda battling Holy men while in a trance during the Sakral Ritual at the unique Pengerebongan ceremony on the Indonesian island of Bali. Folklore plays a big part in Balinese culture with Hinduism being the predominant religion on the island. Balinese Hinduism is not quite the same as Hinduism in India where it originated from as it is a mix of the Animist religion that came before Hinduism from India was introduced hence we get a compelling mix of the two. Rangda is a demon queen of witches and often features in important Balinese religious ceremonies.
