Bali – a Land of Spirits

The Balinese believe spirits are everywhere. The good spirits dwell in the mountains and the evil spirits haunt the deserted beaches and forests. Demons and giant creatures inhabit the sea. Living between the forces of good and evil, the people must strike a balance and keep peace. This is accomplished by making daily offerings to pay homage to the good spirits and to placate the evil ones.

The images below were made at at least six different temples throughout Bali and along it’s streets and beaches.
