On the way drifting in Bali Indonesia May 18, 2011
Its good to enjoy the drifting experience in Bali Indonesia. you can enjoy the beauty of the forest and the original jungle. The price is not expensive only for $35 for drifting and include one lunch.

I am shocked by the beauty of the stone carving. Its filled with the taste of history. I am not sure about how many years they exist exactly. But I still admire the intelligent of the human who made the stone carving. I can tell the wish of ancient local people want to adhere with the nature and unknown future. Or maybe they adore and fear to unknown future and the animal god they believed.

When I was drifting in the joungle, there is one second that I want to be a monkey and hang in the tree from here to there. Such amazing life!

Art of Bali (stone carving) Aug 14, 2007
Statue is main object of Bali's art carving and sculpturing. Its designs are very famous, since they are commonly inspired by ritual activities,daily lives,floras and also faunas. The designs which are rooted the idea from ritual stuffs, ussually taking shape as God or barong landung couple. Meanwhile designs which are taken from daily lives ussually taking shape as person who works fisherman or people who does poultry activity. The designs taken from floras like banan,coconut,manggo tree or orchids. also from faunas shape like duck,frog,rabit,dolphin,tiger ext. one for sure.

Mostly statue made are from wood. However there are also carve statue made from paras or padas stone also lava stone. Now on they event created new type of stone but not that strong as natural stone for sure.

if you go to ubud from denpasar,kuta,sanur,nusa dua ext you will find various models of statue which are carved as a relief or lamp place to be used at home as an accesory
