Kids dressed for Kuda Lumping dance, Java, Indonesia

Seni Kuda Lemping ,a traditional dance of Java is one of these trance dances, in which masks for spirit characters and flat woven bamboo horses are the main props. The dance is about the battle of good and evil, with the horse riding characters going into a trance where they behave like horses. Kuda Lemping literally means "flat horses."
