Hi Callie, James Clark of Nomadic Notes snapped this while he was in Ubud.
Ubud is filled with amazing artists who create these figures to use during during the Ogoh-ogoh parade.
Haha! I love this! Thanks for featuring James on your WW series – he’s a great photographer.

Sam, James has several more shots from the Ogoh-ogoh parade you should check out.
His entire site is full of great intel and eye-candy but I think my favorite feature is James’ weekly Nomadic News series… always learn so much about great reads, good food, cool gear, etc…
Oh my goodness, wow. It’s like he’s so in your face!
Nicole – definitely not something you can easily ignore and during the parade, there are MORE of them!
Those fingernails are INTENSE!;-)

Jess, they are intense and the entire figure is incredibly constructed.
I’d love to visit a week or so prior to the parade and see these in the making.
Great photo ! haha I would be really scared if I met somebody like that during Halloween … hmm actually any time.

Mike you’re right – the skill involved with making one of these figures is incredible – just look at the details in the face and hands. Wow!
If you click through to James’ site you’ll find all kinda of amazing photos on Nomadic Notes.
I like the crazy eyes.

Colleen, I agree – wild eyes!
The figures they create for this parade are incredible and you can see more from James on this event at http://photos.nomadicnotes.com/indonesia/ubud-ogoh-ogoh-parade-2010-bali
Is that paint? If yes, poor James; it will take him a long bath to remove it

It is paint, and many other elements but it’s not James Clark – He’s the Photographer. *grin*
You can read more about the Parade and the wild figures they make for it at these links:
I think I need this as my Halloween costume.

Nice photo of a scary man!

Thanks for stopping by Memo – Amazing talent in creating this figure, huh?
I can only imagine what attending the Ogoh-ogoh Parade must be like where you see many more like this.
Definite Wow factor at play.
he’s pretty cool. (Found this from your stumble account; nice to find another person with their own blog on there.)

Thanks Daniel. If you click on Nomadic Notes, you can see many more images James has taken throughout his travels.
Thanks too for letting me know how you “Stumbled” over here.
I love the post you did on the Hopi woman and the similarity with Star Wars. Intriguing, for sure!

Definitely Muza-chan – but in a really good way. The Ogoh-ogoh parade in Ubud will confuse and bewilder evil spirits so this guy is helping us out.
