Wordless Wednesday – Ogoh-ogoh

James Clark @ Nomadic Notes

Ogoh-Ogoh Parade, Ubud, Bali - James Clark, Nomadic Notes

James Clark of Nomadic Notes snapped this while he was in Ubud.

Ubud is filled with amazing artists who create these figures to use during during the Ogoh-ogoh parade.

Incredible talent!

James has several more shots from the Ogoh-ogoh parade you should check out.

His entire site is full of great intel and eye-candy but I think my favorite feature is James’ weekly
Nomadic News series… always learn so much about great reads, good food, cool gear, etc…

Definitely not something you can easily ignore and during the parade, there are MORE of them!

They are intense and the entire figure is incredibly constructed.

I’d love to visit a week or so prior to the parade and see these in the making.

The skill involved with making one of these figures is incredible – just look at the details in the face and hands. Wow!

If you click through to James’ site you’ll find all kinda of amazing photos on Nomadic Notes. 🙂

I agree – wild eyes!

The figures they create for this parade are incredible and you can see more from James on this event

It is paint, and many other elements but it’s not James Clark – He’s the Photographer. grin

You can read more about the Parade and the wild figures they make for it

Amazing talent in creating this figure, huh?

I can only imagine what attending the Ogoh-ogoh Parade must be like where you see many more like this.

Definite Wow factor at play.

If you click on Nomadic Notes, you can see many more images James has taken throughout his travels.

Thanks too for letting me know how you “Stumbled” over here. 🙂

I love the post you did on the Hopi woman and the similarity with Star Wars. Intriguing, for sure!

The Ogoh-ogoh parade in Ubud will confuse and bewilder evil spirits so this guy is helping us out. 🙂
