Ogoh-Ogoh

A massive communal ritual of release.

Ogoh-Ogoh: The Purging 

Write down your fears and banish them to the belly of our duck-billed platypus ogoh-ogoh—a totem-like sculpture derived from a Balinese Hindu purification ritual and crafted by Balinese artists.

      Ogoh-Ogoh: The Burning 

      You must be ready to burn yourself in your own flame;
      how could you rise anew if you have not first become ashes?
      ―Friedrich Nietzsche

      Join us after the procession for the final stage of our collective ritual of renewal, where we’ll release our platypus into flames—and with it, our fears.
