The "Moon" of Pejeng

The moon of Pejeng which is kept in a shrine in Penataran Sasih temple can be considered as the most remarkable antiquities in Bali. This bronze drum is a sacred relic for Balinese, an artifact for the archeologist, and a curiosity for the tourists. The older generations of Balinese invented various myths around the drum. Some say that it is one of the subangs (ear-plugs) of the moon; while other say it is a sasih, the 'moon' itself.

On Comet

The appearance comet is not just an ordinary astrological phenomenon to the Balinese; it is an omen, a prophecy of what will happen in the future. Most of the Balinese believe that the appearance of a comet means the world was going to get “very hot, or bad”. A comet was reported in September 1965, at the time of Gestapu, the abortive Indonesian coup which claimed the life of more than 50.000 Balinese. Another was reported at the time of the death of Indonesia’s first president, Sukarno.
