The Balinese are Hindus, but their form of the religion is unique to Bali. They are very devote and create these daily offerings to the gods. The offerings are made each day and are left at temples shrines, entrances to homes, hotels, store fronts and always on the dash board of a taxi. They consist of a palm leaf made into a small tray (4"X 4") filled with gifts to the gods and a stick of incense to lift it all. All are filled with rice and flowers but can include, fruit, grasses, sweets, a Ritz crackers, and even a little plastic bag of soya sauce. They are so beautiful and I didn't do this one justice with my painting. I will try another, I am sure, as it is part of everyday life, now.
