In Bali each 210 days temple festival, several performances are conducted. One of them is "Rejang Dance (Sacred Dance for the God).Usually dancers are selected from pre menarche girls in the village.
Dancers wear the beautiful head dress seriously made by her mother and grandmother. She just waits for the start sign while sitting in the shade.

Bali is an amazing country as far as rituals are concerned. Though Hindu (like us), their rituals are far removed of our practices. A lovely smile on the young Rejang dancer, with her innocent smile & amazing head dress capturing attention. Perhaps a bit too tight a crop to the left? Otherwise a very fine portrait
