Item Name:
painting
Label:
This Kamasan painting has been attributed to artist Nyoman Dogol and dated to the 1920s-30s. Anthony Forge collected it in 1972-73. This is a langse, an oblong painting suitable for use in a temple as a curtain, to screen the bed on which offerings are placed. The painting had been used as a curtain, because it is visible where the Chinese coins, kepeng, had been originally attached at the top and bottom of the cloth. The Chinese coins, with a hole in the centre, are often used in Bali to suspend the paintings. Size: 180x88.
