Event description

Description

**Due to Visa entry issues, this talk has been postponed. We will send updates to all attendees with the new date once we know more.**

I Made Sutama will talk about the fascinating techniques and traditions behind the Balinese Ogoh-Ogoh Masks and puppets from Bali.

Ogoh-ogoh is a big puppet (2 meters - 5 meters) made out of wood, bamboo and paper. Its form is usually a beast or scary creature, made according to local Bali story or from Ramayana & Mahabharata. It is made by communities to celebrate Balinese new year, with parade, dance and Balinese traditional music and burnt.
