Living Mask Traditions And Masterpieces
The Tapel Lestari Foundation is proud to announce the release of ‘Masks of Bali’. This major book documenting the history of this still living tradition is of great interest to Baliophiles, scholars, lay persons, performers, art lovers, libraries and institutions.
Co-authored by the acclaimed dancer-scholar, Prof. D.r IMade Bandem, and art historian, Bruce W. Carpenter, this luxury publication designed by Ni Luh Ketut Sukarniasih, features over 1000 illustrations including rare historical photos, artworks and stunning contemporary images of living traditions by Doddy Obenk who also oversaw the photography of hundreds of rare masks.

The makers of the book have also been honoured with a heartfelt foreword penned by Joko Widodo, President of the Republic of Indonesia.
