Bali Country Side Tour
Kamasan is a traditional village where the Kamasan style of classical painting originated.
A number of artists have workshops and small showrooms with figures depicted in profile, like wayang kulit shadow puppets, also called "wayang" or "Kamasan",along the main street.
Sidemen was a base for Swiss ethnologist Urs Ramseyer, and is also a centre for traditional culture and arts, particularly songket, a cloth woven with threads of silver and gold.
It has a marvelous scenery and an attractive rural character.
Includes a collection of pre–Hindu artifacts, including stone sarcophagus from the time before cremations were practiced on Bali.
Here you´ll find a lot of sarcophagi. The burial system suggests the existence of a stratified society, people buried in sarcophagi probably being of higher status.
This museum devoted to Balinese antiquities is on the right hand side of the main road about a mile north of Bedulu.
Well–housed but poorly displayed are many fragments from Bali´s last 400,000 years of human endeavor. The collection ranges from simple platonic stone tools and blades, through the pre–Hindu Buddhism and beyond.
Of special interest are large Bronze Age sarcophagi that have been excavated from many locations on the island. Each of these would usually contain a single dead person, along with his or her jewelry, a pig or dog, and miniature symbolic bronze tools.
They come in almost as great a variety of shapes and sizes as there have been samples found (about sixty to date).
Many have knobs, probably to tie the two halves together, some carved into human or turtle–like heads.
One of the most conservative villages of the Bali Age "original Balinese". This is a walled village. Within the bastions, all living compounds are identical in plan and are arranged in rows on either side of the wide, stone–paved lines which run the length of the village.
The people of Tenganan claim to have come originally from Bedahulu. The legend of how they acquired the land dates from the 14th century. The mighty king Dalem Bedahulu lost his favorite horse and sent the villagers of his kingdom in all directions in search of it.
Tenganan is also well known for its Geringsing cloth or double ikat. Through an intricate process of weaving and dyeing, known only here, a single cloth takes five years to complete.
Tenganan has many interesting traditions such as ritual and art tradition especially Mekare–kare or Perang Pandan (the fight of Pandanus leaves) which takes place only once a year during a festival called Usaba Sambah, tradition of preserving and maintaining the environment, burial tradition, etc.
