Balinese painting E74214G

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 the triumph of Rangda is celebrated by her seven chief assistants. They dance over a corpse, a bier, and other signs of continued death and destruction.
