Ogoh-ogoh

Ogoh-ogoh is a sculpture depicting the Balinese culture personality Bhuta Kala. In the teachings of HinduDharma, Bhuta Kala represents strength (Bhu) universe and time (Kala) is not measurable and undeniable. 

In the embodiment of the statue in question, Bhuta Kala portrayed as large and scary, usually in the form of Rakshasa. 

In addition to the form of Rakshasa, Ogoh-ogoh are often depicted in the form of the creatures that livein Mayapada, Heaven and Naraka, such as: dragon, elephant,, Widyadari, even in its development,there were made ??to resemble famous people, such as world leaders , artist or religious figures and even criminals. Related to this, there is also a political one or SARA although this actually deviate fromthe basic principles of Ogoh-ogoh. Ogoh-ogoh example depicting a terrorist. 

In the main function, Ogoh-ogoh Bhuta Kala as a representation, made ??ahead of Nyepi Day andparaded around the village abuzz Pangrupukan at dusk, the day before Nyepi. 

According to scholars and practitioners of Hindu Dharma, this process represents the humanconsciousness of the power of the universe and time that is most powerful. That power includes the power Bhuana Great (universe) and Bhuana Alit (human beings). In view of Tattwa (philosophy), this power can deliver living beings, particularly humans and the rest of the world to happiness ordestruction. This all depends on the intention of the noble man, as God's most precious creatures in keeping himself and the whole world.
