Story:

In Bali on the slope of Mt Agung is the mother temple of Bali, Pura Besakih. There are many temples in Bali, in fact it is said there are more than 20,000 when you include family temples and village temples, yet it is Pura Besakih which is my favorite. Each time I go there I feel like I have returned home. It is beautiful with its many levels, each level with its own colours and sounds.

Pura Besakih is the largest temple in Bali and central to the 8 directional temples. It is a very special place which has inspired this art piece and will inspire many more, I am sure.
