Barong dance in Desa Sembung

The picture captured today shows a young boy named I Made Atos Purnama dancing in the Barong mask in front of the home I live on Bali.
Barong is probably the most well known dance. It is also another story telling dance, narrating the fight between good and evil. Its a character in the mythology of Bali. He is the king of the good spirits and enemy of Rangda.
The boy shows his face underneath the pigs mask to see the steps in the darkness along the street.

I saw Barong dance and heard the music in Ubud. But never saw such a nice mask.
