A lot like chinese lion dance. The lion costume is worn by two persons, one person act as the front half of the lion and another as the rear half. The performance for this event was pretty impressive, the "lion" was able to jump, running, rolling around as if they were real.
The photo was taken at a Festival at Bali. However the art was actually from Eastern Java.

How comes all my attention goes to the little flying stuff on the upper right corner?
