Monday Urban Moments - Art in Bali

After a week in Bali I have many impressions of the handkrafted things on that indonesian island. Which I want to share with you. When you drive throuh the countryside, everywhere you can see things we don´t have in germany. Whether at the beachside or on the hills in direction to Ubud, on every traffic circle is a high statue. 

Unbelievable what art can do to make a city look nicer. From history of Hindiusm saga, every statue stands for a story. And Bali makes a statement, that it is a hindu island. The monuments are about 12 meters high. Maybe we should take a few ideas from Bali to make our Countryside nicer. What do you think?
