  • The tradition of Balinese cloth painting stems from storytelling. They narrate visual scenes from Balinese myths and the Hindu epics of Mahabharata and Ramayana. Sizes vary, some being several feet long to festival banners being over 30 feet in length. They feature a range of characters such as Hindu deities and demons, Balinese folklore heroes and even everyday scenes of Balinese life. Such elaborate story cloths were commissioned by royalty, nobles and temple councils.
