"Bali Houses" and "Temples" in Fine Art Paintings (3/10)

Over many generations the Balinese have cultivated their island. A finely balanced water system distributes the life-giving fluid to numerous artificially created rice terraces.

These fresh green rice terraces together with several volcanoes that rise out of deep jungle up to over 3000m dominate the Balinese Landscape.
Honoured and respected by the Balinese People, these volcanoes are an important element in this island's culture.
Traditional Balinese Houses and Temples, most ensembles of several single Bale and small houses, are part of their surrounding neighbourhood.

This is apparent everywhere in daily life as well as in the countryside, like probably nowhere else in the world. You will find in Bali places for offerings in caves, at springs, rivers, and very old trees, as well as at road crossings, bridges and in nearly all rice fields. The daily offerings at these places should guaranty protection from the "demons" und ensure good harvests and wealth.

Often traditional GRASS ROOF HOUSES disappear between coconut palm trees. TEMPLES are covered by rain forest moss and fern. All seems woven together by a common structure. The only colourful accents in this harmonic view is set by decorations during ceremonies.
