Story:

An offering for the Goddess. A dance, her body which is naked ...free of ego and concept, a flower ...frangipani, incense at her feet, fires of passion and desire. She offers everything free from hope and fear.

Inspired after a dream I had from Besakih Temple, the mother temple of Bali at the foot of Mt Agung. Personally my favourite temple in Bali, a place where I feel completely at home.

To offer everything is to continually dance.
