Bali, Indonesia - 30th October 2012

By: Linda Fdph

Hello Mum,
I take a picture with BARONG.
Barong is a lion-like creature and character in the mythology of Bali, Indonesia. He is the king of the spirits, leader of the hosts of good.  Barong is a physical manifestation of a protective spirit which guards people from evil influences. In Bali, it dates back to ancient, pre-Hindu times when animism was the most popular form of belief.

Traditionally, it is believed that a barong is powerful enough to guard a village - you can also see the barong mask in temple friezes all over Bali, with the aim of driving away the demons known in Balinese as bhuta-kala.
