BALI KINGDOM’S GLORY BEFORE EUROPEAN CAME(3th -13th Century) From Chinese Sources (ibid .Groeneveldt,1880).

1. The first China Sailors &  Traders came to Bali(source : Original Handwritting Old  History of The Tang Dynasty (618-906) Book 197.): Ka-Ling (1) means Java Island ( the capital of java Kingdom called Japa-auth) on an island in the southern ocean, it lies on the eastern side of Pa-Li (2) means Sumatra , on the westren sised of Dva-pa-tan(1) means Bali . ( No information about Bali Kingdom and the Date , but at Bali still found Chinese cast coin from Later Han Dynasty, Tang Dynasty to Qing Dynasty some original and the other Old Bali mint cast coin. Many Chinese traders in Bali during that times that is why the currency used the Chinese mint aor Bali mint cast coins until 1951 when all Indonesia money changes to the new currency , small money change 100% nominal value and high nominal value from Rp 5.- to Rp.1000 cutting half the left one change with new money an d the rigght side changd with obligations called “sjafruddin -cutting ” Policies.The complete information look at ‘Bali Numismatic History(cash Coin or Gobok) -auth)

2. The first Bali Kingdom Sent envoy to China Emperor Tang Dynasty (source : Original Handwritting New History of the Tang Dynasty .Book.222 part 2.): 622-649 AD, during rhe period Chin-Kwan (627-649) this country (Kaling ) sent envoys to bring tribute together with those Dva-ha-la(Lombok) and Dva-pa-tan(Bali) . The Emperor favoured them with a reply under the great seal and as Dva-ha-la asked  for good horses, these were given to them ( after this year no information from Dva-pa- tan or bali anymore, because the the Dva-pa-tan or bali Kingdom were appart from the Java Kingdom (Mataram) after Sultan Agung of Mataram Kingdom occupied blambangan Bali protectorated Kingdom ex Mojopahit east java after attack in 1633 and Dva-pa-tan or Bali Kingdom didn’t succeed occupied by Sultan Agung because Bali protected by Ducth East India company-VOC. looked the History after European came-auth).

.(Vintage Book illustrations)

Balinese art has a style and a character of its own. The artists are numerous and profilic,distinguish by the aptience and efficiency of their craftmanship, and by their extremefaithfulness to an artistic tradition  unlike westren artist, they seem to try to produce works conforming as nearly as possible to the aptterns used by their fellow-artists. Any individuality in the artist is bot stressed, as it is with Westrens , but rather contrary. If any works which show an unsual vision, a touch of originalilty, are produced , it would seem that they have come about through  the agency of an artist’s particular gifts, nor by intention, but as it were in spite of his effort to make them alive like everyone else’s.(Belo.J.,1937)

The vintage native  Balinese’s Children paintings age between 4 to 10 years old . They live in the undistinguished  village of Sajan(District Gianjar), Bandjar Koetoeh which possesses neither a dalang nor a profesional painter, they are all boys has a father or elder brother  whose bussiness it is to paint or to carve or to cut out in leather the Wayang puppet.  ,

All the boys  were the strict stylization of the forms, derivatrive form wayang tecchnique, the dramatic portrayal of demons, witches and mythological beasts , with gaping mouth aand glaring eye, the decisiveness of the line and the free and spontaneous recklesness of composition, combining uproatious action with a balanced , if rudimentery , sense of design.

During this time in Bali there is not “Mickey Mouse” but a score or more of figures familiar to the children- some brave, some fierce,some jolly, and some beautiful to behold. there are heroes and demos, horrifying enemies who burst out at one in dengereous situation. Thus the wyang provides the Balinese child with a whole gallery of puppets for the play of his own fantasy.

The Vintage  Native Balinese Children  paintings with divided to four groups :

Group 1. Wayang scene drawing .single or detailed with the names of wayangs.

Group 2.A Rendering of Real life :  a mototr-car, the car is being ‘Stopeed’ by another wayang, a wayang pedanda (high priest0 is held by the beast, Batara di Loewoer (ancetor god) confronts Betara Soerja(the sun as a god)

Group 3. Human Figures  and Scenes. Cheerfully draws “little brother’ with the crown of  a hero.,Raksasa.  The Battle motif, wheter of wayangs,beast,men,gods,or spirita, is the favorite  amongst all children.The battle scene in which brandish stylistically drawn weapons, the air is filled with flying arrows, enemies transform themselves into strange beasts and heroes serpents or fierce birds of prey. Magic weapons with the Giant demon.

Group 4.  Animals motif. Animals both domestic and imaginary ; the King fight of a Koeplak-Kaplik an evil spitit said to resemble a goat, but whose eare are so long that they make a sound ‘koeplak-kapli’ against the ground as he walks; a Battle between a mythological bird and a mythological lion,the bird,Garoeda(eagle),the Lion,Rahwana tarnsformed; a cow ridden by a man encountersa “Lejak” or a human being transformed into fiendish shape,with wild hair and long projecting teeth-in the center thechild of the cow,crying for its mother. A Tonja pops out of a tree while Ardjoena fight against Raksasa.

A Tonja appears in river, when an ordinary mas is taking hsi ducks to water; the Tonja steals a duck.scene I: The monkey prince Hanman comes to tell Bima that his little brother is lost.Bima weeps.Hanoman very angry, he flew through the air, but he didnot find him.Scane two : a follower of Rangda,the witch, hurls herself into the picture from one side, offering in her outstrached hand the head of Bima’s little brother which Rangda is about to devour.  The stealing of a bride, Two men are lying dead, their weapons fallen beside them, one with his leg bitten off and above are the dogs showing their long-fanged jaws.
