Thank you!
The Balinese language has no word for "art" and "artist." To the Balinese, art is not a category; it is a way of life. Therefore, there is no need for those definitions. Everywhere, in palaces, temples, and homes, art has been a central vehicle. People are expected to surround themselves with things of beauty.
