Photographer's Note


a peaceful fight..

A photograph taken at the village of Tenganan, last june 2010. I was there to make a documentation about this unique culture belong to the village Bali Aga.
As an ancient village, Tenganan Pegeringsingan is identical with religious activities. Many temple festivals performed in this village that attract visitors to come. The most famous one is "Mekare-kare" or "Perang Pandan". This is a ceremonial fight or war using thorny pandanous leaves as the weapon. This festival usually takes place in relation to the celebration of "Sasih Kelima" or the fifth Balinese month. Many other uniqueness of custom and culture can be found here that make Tenganan worth to visit.

Have a nice week-end to all of you.
