Balinese Culture

It's one of the islands of Indonesia that provides some really unique and beautiful tourist attractions, and of course, those of you who have been to Bali knows what all the tourist places are. All you need to know is that not only does it offer a lot of beautiful tourist places, but it does offer a whole lot of Balinese culture. But this time I'm only going to talk about the culture expressed in paintings. You can look at the three paintings I photographed in Krishna's gallery.

1.Balinese Mask

Balinese masks were made out of wood. A type of wood commonly used as a mask-making agent includes vagus and pules. In the process, some of the crowning steps are passed until it becomes a mask. Additionally, the presence of certain ferns in character portraying traits necessitates the specific skill of the marketed craftsman. The mask became the main tool in the mask dance, traditional Balinese dramatics. In a dance mask, any thespian or dancer performs in a special dress and wears a mask. A dancer wore a mask to identify a character he portrayed in performance. Stories introduced in mask dance are usually rooted in history (bad) or legend. Based on the social strata of the play, masks can be grouped into several types. These masks include hard masks (fighter figures), old masks (elders), bonds masks (common people), and queen masks (aristocrats). Apart from these common types, there are special kinds of masks, such as calonarang masks, tarut masks, and mask masks. A mask displaying an ugly figure, fangs, and wide-eyed eyes that symbolize crime. The far shifting mask between man and a rogue giant represented the creature who helped barong in the face of the range. As with jauk, telek was an ally of barong. 


Ganesh in the belief that most people of Bali represent understanding, wisdom, or intelligence, to distinguish what a person must have to achieve perfection in his life. The god Ganesh is the Hindu god that is in his famous statue and picture and is symbolized by the human figure with an elephant head. Besides being called Ganapati, this god is also known as Ganapati or Vinayaka. The Hindus who worship god Ganesh are begging for god's blessing to achieve success in the physical world for further perfection. The god Ganesh is the god who must first be venerated before venerating another god or goddess or any other celebration. In Hindu mythology, the god Ganesh was the son of Shiva and the goddess wati (another form of goddess Durga).

3.A Great Mountainside

As with the ban on the south coast, we also cannot wear green shirts on the great mountains. Green was the queen of the south coast's color and no one else was supposed to match it. What then has to do with the great mountain? People in Bali have a belief that the mountains and the seas are both husband and wife. According to surrounding urban myth, red is a favorite color of the grand mountain's invisibility, so it is best to avoid wearing a red clothier.
And that's the culture, the myth, which is still believed by the Balinese people, whether it makes sense or not, which all of which is a sign that Indonesia has cultural diversity
