One of the great things about the Nyepi celebrations in Bali is the Ogoh Ogoh statues that are built in every village. A parade of these creatures takes place on the eve of Nyepi day , which is tonight!
We took a drive around town yesterday, where last minute preparations of the statues were busily being done. Below is a sample of what we found.
The following two Ogoh Ogoh are being built in central Ubud, which will be the centre of the parade celebrations tonight.
There are some pretty scary dudes
Some of them are obviously female, I think?
Creativity going wild.
This is one of our favourites, the seven headed demon.
We also have our own demons …
We also found this image of an Ogoh Ogoh from ten years ago when we first came to Bali.
We can’t wait till tonight. We are staying in our village of Lodtunduh and will join the procession around here. We will blog with all the details.
