The sacred temple masks of Barong and Rangda are powerful protectors of the temple and village. The Barong is a gentle, clumsy creature with a leonine face, a great clacking jaw and a flowing white mane, that stretches nearly two metres long when animated by two male players, one in the bead and one in the bind parts. The costume is richly ornamented with gilt mirrors and gold-painted leather, and reflects the light as the creature moves in its comical animal-like shambling gait.
