Introducing our new Collection "Tapel or Mask of Rangda"
Rangda is known as a Leyak queen, she was linked to the legend of Calon Arang and also the legend of divorced and exiled Javanese queen Mahendradatta. The name Rangda in old Javanese and Balinese language means "widow".
Rangda is important in Balinese culture, She is depicted as a mostly nude old woman, with long and unkempt hair, pendulous breasts, and claws. Her face is traditionally a horrifying fanged and goggle-eyed mask, with a long, protruding tongue.
Bali is a Hindu island, and it is suggested that Rangda may also be closely associated with Durga. She is also considered similar to the Hindu warrior goddess Kali, the goddess of destruction, transformation and protection in Hinduism.
