Balinese Art Gallery

Almost all Balinese are Hindu. And almost everyone is an artist of some type. The Balinese society and economy revolve around art. They produce art; they buy and sell art; they trade art. And their art centers on their religion.

Many produce sculptures using a surprising range of material from wood to metal to stone. Others specialize in traditional dance. Balinese dancing is world renowned.
