I took this photo of baris dancer when I was at Tampak Siring village to take a photo of a ceremony.. I took in low angle so that the photo will look more dramatic.. at least, for me.. :)
This dance called Baris Dance. Baris dance is a traditional war dance of Bali, accompanied by gamelan, in which a solo dancer depicts the feelings of a young warrior prior to battle, glorifying the man hood of the triumphant Balinese warrior and displaying the sublimity of his commanding presence. Originally it was performed as a religious ritual to dedicate warriors and their weapons during a temple feast. The dancer may bear a kris, a spear, a bow, or other weapons, depending on the variant performed. baris literally means line or file, referring to the line of soldiers who served the rajas of Bali.
Have a nice day!
