Banjar Sangging in Kamasan

In the foreground is a sign to the studio of artist Nyoman Mandra. He is the most prominent Kamasan artist living today and runs a school to teach local children how to paint in the Kamasan tradition. He met with Professor Anthony Forge in the 1970s and assisted Forge with the identification of narratives in some of the paintings collected at that time. Several of his paintings are in the Australian Museum collection, including the Ramayana paintings E076413 and E076414.
