Reader and well-known blogger Carl Valiquet wrote last week to share his remarkable mixed-media presentation he and his wife recorded on the evening of March 22, 2011 when Bali was festooned with colorful ogoh-ogoh.
Carl’s final creation, embedded on balidiscovery.com,
masterfully captures the pandemonium and spirituality that marks ogoh-ogoh
parades in Bali. The presentation also beautifully captures the moments when the young village men carrying an ogoh-ogoh
float become possessed and fall into trance, only to be revived through the anointment with holy water by Balinese priests.
Carl best summed up his Nyepi
experience, saying: “That evening, as I walked back to my Sanur home, I reminded myself that I live in a very unique and enigmatic Island.”
Carl, thank you for sharing.
