These pictures are from Balinese NYE (Nyepi) and are of an Ogoh Ogoh which are papier mache “monsters” that villagers make to scare away evil spirits. They carry them down the street and make lots of noise to confuse the spirits. Traditionally the Ogoh Ogoh are burnt at the end of the night however now a lot of them are very grand and a lot of time and money has gone into building them so they are kept after the parade for the following year. This huge pig one was my favourite, it was easily the size of a bus and had around 40 men carrying it.
