Let’s visit Bali’s oldest art museum.
We walk through the ornate entrance and receive our entrance ticket from our guide.
This places beautiful.
Lovely, lush landscaping and such nice stairs and pathways.
At the top of the first set of stairs we stop to admire this arbor and bridge over the lake.
We follow a path along the water and fountain. Puri Lukisan museum consists of four main exhibit buildings. We will only show some art from one, the South Building.
This building displays primarily new acquisitions and temporary exhibits.
This was an interesting sculpture. But this.
We like colorful work. This is rather timely for late October and early November.
Titled Spirits of the Forest by Satya Cipta, 2019. This one reminds us of island life. *676*
Remember, Bali is one of several thousand islands that comprise Indonesia. That is all we are showing you. On display is a letter written to the Bali government from then, Attorney General, Robert Kennedy. Mr. Kennedy thanked the government of Bali for hospitality and honors bestowed upon him and his wife during an official visit. We really want you to visit Bali and experience this art museum.
After more exploring, we leave the exhibit and walk toward the pond. Aren’t these water lilies fabulous? Now we go down the stairs and get on our tour bus. When in Bali, spend a little time here. We think you will like it. We did.
It looks so peaceful there.
It really was. Cities had crowds, but attractions we visited were not crowded and very peaceful.
Love the outside! Looks so calming. Those sculptures are definitely interesting.
Everything here was calm. And we were interested in all of it.
That’s fascinating! Thanks for sharing all these wonderful pix!
We really enjoyed the museum. Very tranquil and interesting.
It looks lovely, we didn’t visit this museum in Bali. Is that colourful piece a mask??
No, not a mask. But would be a great mask if not a sculpture. We loved the design and colors.
Bali is a favourite destination for many Australians because it is quite close but we haven’t been yet.
Hope you go soon. It is beautiful, peaceful and interesting.
It won’t be while the virus is running rampant. There was a news report yesterday evening saying the situation had rapidly deteriorated in Bali in the last few days.
Somehow I missed this earlier. Bali was so friendly and peaceful. Sorry they are having such a bad time with thi virus. But, the entire world seems to be not just ill, but economically hurting. Hope this will all be behind us soon. Stay safe and when it is over, check out Bali.
