boys playing outside

boys playing outside
the kori agung guarded by
barong and dragons

Three boys dressed in jeans and T-shirts are playing outside the kori agung, the roofed tower gate of a Balinese pura, a walled, open-air temple. The casual dress of the boys contrasts with the formality and intricate design of the gate with its guardian barong above the carved and gilded double wooden doors, the undulating stone dragons flowing up the pyramidal sides, and the two guardian statues dressed in red, white and black checkered cloth on either side of the steps.
