Indonesia Bali. Batubulan Village

Ten km north east of Denpasar, Batubulan is a village known for its ornate door-guardian statues, carved of soft paras volcanic tuff. Until these became popular for secular use earlier in this century, the carvings were only used in temples or palaces, but this art form has spread extensively in recent years and is today found in public buildings and homes.
