Balinese painting E74214F

This ider-ider painting is probably from the late 19th century and it may be the work of Kamasan artist, Sambug. It was collected by Anthony Forge from the temple of the dead Pura Dalem Bugbugan in Gelgel, Klungkung District in 1972-73. Size: 37x741cm

In this scene Calonarang has transformed herself into the invulnerable witch Rangda. She is shown incinerating the minister, while his followers are dismayed and prepare to flee.
