Balinese Rangda the Witch, (Reincarnation of Durga) Hand Carved Wood Statue, the Demon Queen of the leyaks in Balinese mythology. Terrifying and powerful, Rangda is the leader of witches and demons & queen of the graveyard. She fights against the forces of good in the Barong Dance, the battle between Barong the Lion and Rangda The Witch. This dance represents the eternal struggle between the forces of good and evil where neither ever wins thus creating a fine balance between the two forces.
Rangda is a also associated with Durga Hindu mother warrior goddess, and Kali the dark mother goddess of destruction, transformation and protection in Hinduism. While Rangda is fearsome and the personification of evil, she is nevertheless a protective goddess in Bali, the same as Kali is a benevolent mother goddess in the India.
