Indonesia: Barong

On 10th March I got five postcards: two from Indonesia, one from Japan, my first card from Burundi and one from Belarus.

One of the cards from Indonesia shows a Barong Mask. Barong is a character in the mythology of Bali. He is the king of the good spirits and the nemesis of Rangda. He is featured in the Barong Dance.

The Three genres of traditional dance in Bali, including the Barong Dance, are since 2015 an Intangible Heritage of the UNESCO.
