A gecko and a dragonfly frolic amid flowers on a bamboo flute with tropical design. Known as a suling in Bali, the instrument is carefully crafted by Nyoman Lentong. Flutes of this type are used in the Balinese gamelan percussion orchestra, whose importance goes well beyond the pleasure of music and into the realm of ritual ceremony. Lentong shapes the buluh, or bamboo, by hand using burnt coconut ash to create the motifs. He signs it as "Pan Nasib," as he is known in his village.
