In the magical island of Bali, the presence of the invisible powers that guard the inhabitants is felt everywhere.  Offerings are made to the gods as an expression of gratitude for the fertility of the earth, for the balance of nature, and for all fortuitous events. They are also made to the demons to stave off bad fortune and to make them less disposed to disturb the harmony of the universe.  This beautifully illustrated book provides a glimpse into  the pageantry, ritual and devotion that accompany the creation of offerings in Bali.  Through breathtaking full colour photographs, the author explains the basic elements, the cosmic symbolism and ritual meaning of the materials and colours used in the offerings.
