We learned about the battle between good and evil told through the popular Balinese story of the characters, Barong, the king of the good spirits, and the witch queen, Rangda.  We examined some Balinese carved wooden masks of Barong and Rangda and discussed their fearsome appearance as depicted by Balinese artists.  We saw similarly fearsome faces and intricate patterns in examples of Balinese shadow puppets, and had a chance to decorate our own while listening to traditional gamelan music.
