Balinese with flames
Balinese Hindu festival of Pengrupukan. This celebrates the New Year and the arrival of spring. Over 4000 giant floats or Ogoh-ogoh depicting monsters, take over the streets across Bali. The festival's aim is to roust out the devils which have gone into hiding on the island and drive them off the island. The following day is Nyepi, when the emphasis is on silence and introspection, businesses are closed and people stay indoors. Image taken in Nusa Dua, Bali. Event held in March.
