Ni Putu Tirka Widanti: Highlighting Ogoh-ogoh Museum

Ni Putu Tirka Widanti Highlighting Ogoh-ogoh MuseumThe tradition of making ogoh-ogoh or papier mâché demon has become a trend in the present time. Unfortunately, only few people know about the meaning or philosophy behind it whereas such three-dimensional works of art is always paraded every year before Nyepi celebration. “We want to explore and socialize the meaning and philosophy of the ogoh-ogoh through seminars,” said Ni Putu Tirka Widanti.

This Chairman of the Public Administration Graduate Studies at the Ngurah Rai University said the seminar was in cooperation with the government of Tabanan County. It was held at the Soka Restaurant & Bungalows, Soka Beach tourist area, Tabanan. The resource persons presented in the seminars came from the circle of artists, humanists and religionists. “Hopefully, the results can be disseminated, so that the Hindu community in Bali in particular gets the understanding on the significance of the ogoh-ogoh itself,” she said.

This commissioner of PT. Multi Reka Realty stated the seminar discussed about the form, philosophy and the meaning of the ogoh-ogoh. “This seminar is also held in conjunction with the construction of the ogoh-ogoh museum located on Soka Beach area,” said the author of tens of books smilingly.

The doctoral graduate in the Administration Studies from Tujuh Belas Agustus University, Surabaya, admitted though she was not an artist or a graduate from the art school, she had a passion for preserving Balinese culture. Aside from teaching at college, she was also active as a speaker in the mass media, particularly with respect to the offerings and gender. “One of my intentions that have not been accomplished is to become an English speaking presenter,” concluded the wife of Wayan Darma Sedana.
