The Faces of Bali

Destination Insights photographers love the little, often-overlooked objects around town—any town or village. Wandering around Ubud we saw our first strange stone Balinese carvings (some were concrete castings).

Unusual, weird, “off-color,” or just plain sexy, they first amused us at the Sayan Terrace Hotel. Soon we were finding these odd statues, most only one meter tall, in front of homes and businesses, in hotel gardens, along pathways—just about everywhere. Some are well hidden, which may be why we have never seen them in any book … anywhere.[nggallery id=39]
