A Sacred and Protective Symbol

The Barong, is a mythical and sacred figure of Bali, considered a guardian deity capable of preventing disasters and protecting humans. Depicted with a face similar to that of a lion, this mask is also reminiscent of the traditional Japanese lion dance, adding a fascinating cross-cultural dimension to this piece. Every detail of this mask has been painstakingly carved by hand, showcasing the depth of the carving and the expertise of the Balinese artisans. The dark brown, almost black color gives the mask an imposing and mystical presence, perfect for a wall decoration that will attract all eyes.

This mask, although showing signs of wear and tear consistent with its age, tells the story and traditions of Bali. The case on the left side adds a touch of authenticity, testifying to its antiquity and its use in rituals or ceremonies.
