By EDYTHE HABER
Bali is very distant from the
United States, but at present Uni-!
versity students can observe its
art here on campus.
"Wood Sculpture from Central
Bali," part of at larger collection
of Balinese art recently presented
to the Museum of Anthropology,
is being exhibited atthe Univer-
sity Museum's Rotunda until mid-
January.
Wood carving, used for such
purposes as family shrines, masks
used in rituals, musical instru-
ments, and ornamental panels to
decorate housesris the closest of all
Balinese art forms to the people.
Universal ArtE
Like all other art, it is done by
skilled men in every part of the
society, rather than by a special
class of artists.
TLe principal theme, of Balin-
ese art, is the nation's religion,
which is closely linked with all
phases of its culture and society.
This religion is a kind of Hindu-
ism, mixed with a belief in nat-
ural and supernatural worlds and
a strong ancestor worship.
Therefore, the most popular
subjects are Hindu deities, ances-
tral images, mythological beings,
and historical heroes. These play
a major part in the museum's ex-
hibit.
"Barong, Ragda"
Among these, the masks used
for rituals are particularly color-
ful and expressive. For example,
there is one of "Barong", a mytho-
logical tiger or lion who, it is be-
lieved, controls and counteracts

the action of
an important
mythology.

t?

He is a fearsome-looking char-
acter, with bulging eyes, large
white teeth, and a beard. There is
also a ritual mask of "Makara", a
mythological sea animal who
transports Varuna, God of the
ocean.
Figures from the Balinese sha-
dow play, one of their favorite
forms of entertainment, are also
included. Among them is "Hanu-
man", the monkey chief, a very
popular mythological figure, who
was presented originally in the
Hindu epic poem, Ramayana.
Four-armed Goddess
The four-armed goddess "Dur-
ga," dressed in crown, jewelry
and belt of divinity and standing
on a lotus throne is one of the
various representatives of Hindu-
ism in the exhibition.
Carvings which have no reli-
gious or mythological significance
are also displayed. Among these
are a little tiger, coated with red
paint and gilt spots and a small
panel representing a bull butting
a fence, used for kitchen decora-
tion.
Generally the carvings are
small, under twenty inches, high.
Many are of plain, unvarnished
wood and others are painted and
gilded.
The collection, was presented to
the Anthropology Museum by Re-
gent and Mrs. Eugene B. Power of
Ann Arbor, and includes 107
pieces in all.

the evil "Rangda",
figure in Balinese

_,

-Daily-Dick Gaskill
FIGHTS EVIL - "Barong", here represented by a ritual mask,
is a mythological tiger or lion. He symbolizes "good" and controls
the actions of the witch "Rangda", who is "evil".,These animated
masks are used in ritual dances to portray the supernatural forces.

---Daily-Dick Gaskill
WISE MAN -- The priests of Bali are greatly respected by the
people, who call them wise men. They are represented at the
exhibit by a figure taller than most of the others, skillfully carved
out of unpainted wood.

DIALECTICAL FALLACY - Prof. Ronald S. Crane, professor
of English at the University of Chicago, spoke yesterday at An-
gell Hall on "Criticism as Research". Crane compared the his-
torical approach in literary criticism with the development of the
new "Theorist" school, which has risen to prominence since the
1930's. Crane criticized the ruling hypothesis of this dialectical
fallacy And pointed out that criticism has been violated in the
last decades by this critical method.
