Balinese spiritual culture has its origins in Hinduism, Buddhism and animist beliefs, and these ancient traditions have fused over time giving birth to practices that are fervently observed by the Balinese people to this day.
Travel photographer Tewfic El-Sawy documented three of these singular practices during his sojourns on the Indonesian island, and with his black & white photographs captures deity purification ceremonies, cremations and cockfighting.
