The Rangda mask, Bali.
In Balinese society the Rangda mask bears a spiritual significance and is considered sakti or magically powerful. In common with every magicallypowerful thing, the Rangda mask is regarded with respect as benevolent force in the life of the community. The Rangda mask, capable of emitting dangerous vibrations is always kept covered by a white cloth until a Rangda actor enters the stage for a dance drama performance.
