Flower Interruption: Bali, Indonesia, 2002


Flower Interruption: Bali Indonesia took place on Thursday, July 18, 2002 at 11:00 am in the Monkey Forest of Ubud. The Monkey Forest is one of the most popular tourist destinations and a sanctuary for over a hundred long-tailed macaques.

An interesting juxtaposition to the Interruption here was that Bali is a Hindu-based island (one of the only Hindu-based islands of Indonesia – Indonesia is the largest Muslim country in the world) and one of the daily rituals for the Hindu culture is the laying out of offerings to the gods. Offerings of flowers and rice are spread out on palm leaves every morning and evening.
