This book is just phenomenal. Not only is it profusely illustrated with beautiful photographs of the various masks used in Balinese ceremonies, but it also covers their religious back ground and shows how the masks are carved and painted. You would think that a book of this quality would cost quite a bit. But at $18.95 it's a steal. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in art, religion, anthropology or just plain curiosity.
