The mysticism of the Jaran Kepang dance inspires this admirable horse sculpture by Wayan Agus Satya Putra. He carves the palmwood sculpture by hand with admirable details, making it appear like an antique treasure. Meaning "Woven bamboo hobbyhorse," Jaran Kepang is a Javanese dance in which the performer begins to dance with the horse, eventually entering a form of trance in which he becomes the horse. His movements are that of the equine, and the dancer eats grass, flowers, etc. By the time the dance finishes, the performer has come out of his trance, known as ndadi or "become."
