Details

Wayan Rendah has captures the spiritual qualities of a beautiful Janger dancer via the gentle swaying movements of this traditional Balinese dance. The Janger is performed by twelve young girls and twelve young boys who sit in opposing rows, taking turns in singing a local melody. The girls sing a soft harmonious piece swaying gently, contrasting with the sharp yells and angular motions of the boys. The beautiful dancer in this piece conveys a state of spiritual bliss as she curves her waist to the music. Carved from local suar wood, the dancer's exotic costume is crowned by an elaborate dazzling headdress. In one hand she daintily holds an open fan.
