Special day for metal

The other day it was ‘Tumpek Landep’ and on that special day the Balinese make offerings to the god of metal.  No, not heavy metal music… but gold, iron, bronze etc., and the tools and equipment made from these metals.

So you can see small trays made of coconut leaves with flowers, rice and fruit inside them, or maybe just decorative coconut leaves sitting on top of everything from motorbikes and cars, to saws, kitchen knifes, jewellery and laptops.
