Beautiful Flower Offerings on Bali | Canang Sari
The first things you notice when you travel to Bali are the beautiful offerings in trays made of palm tree leaves. They are placed either on the floor or in small shrines. They are called ‘Canang Sari'(sari = essence; canang = palm leave basket).
I was lucky to join the preparation of these offerings one morning prior to a ceremony. I am still impressed by the love for the details. The pictures were taken in a small village close to Gianyar. The women of the neighborhood where I lived spent hours in the morning to fill every palm leave basket with small flowers, fruits, and wooden bundles.
