This lion masuk made of ceder is another symbol of this unique festival. This lion leads the portable shrines and the children of Gods.

The wooden lion looks really scary. As you can see the faces of men carrying him, is anything but lightweight. And behind them the whole procession of beautifully dressed children. Great composition.

Another great one, Takero!
You have a wonderful series! This time you don't have just a portrait, you have a fantastic mask also!
Very well captured, somehow you usually find very good povs!

Hello Takero, Here we are with the a fantastic wooden lion figure/mask being held by these gentlemen. My guess is that this is likely fairly heavy. Is this sort of a parade with music or what? It looks like the man on the right might be singing. Another interesting study and picture of a cultural event. Keep them coming. Regards, Roger

What appears is the mask is quite heavy. Not only is the sculpture wonderful, like the compo & framing. Wondering if you could crop the half lady on the left though. Use of DOF is wonderful as always!
