This is my first time to Antonio Blanco's Museum. A very famous Italian painter who lived and had a family in Bali (Ubud). His paintings are showing the beautiful of Balinese women. From this museum, I've known for the first time why Bali becoming Indonesian most famous island with plenty of international tourist coming there. It's all about the breast as the newspaper said. The history said, a European doctor (I forgot from which country, got a short therm memory lost hehehe) first discovered about the truly beauty of Bali. It's in the women who wear nothing at the top. It's their tradition not to wear anything on the top, only wearing sarong. The doctor took as many as photos and brought back to his country. Many got fascinated by the beauty of balinese women. Since then many people come to Bali and discovered more beauty Bali has to offer. But then, our first president Mr Soekarno (around 1945) told Balinese women to cover their top. So nowadays none of Balinese women showing their breast in public.

Anywaaayyyy...about the museum, you can see all the beautiful painting of Antonio Blanco. But too bad, in the museum no camera allowed.
But outside the museum, it has soo many beautiful garden, a gallery and studio, and small bird park.
