Meggum 's Thoughts:

Topeng (Indonesian for “mask”) is a dramatic form of Indonesian dance in which one or more mask-wearing, ornately-costumed performers interpret traditional narratives concerning fabled kings, heroes and myths, accompanied by gamelan music. The form arose in the 15th century in Bali and Javawhere it remains prevalent, but it is also found in other Indonesian islands – such as Madura (near East Java). The well-developed topeng technique is now studied in universities of Europe and America.Indonesian masked dance predates Hindu-Buddhist influences. Native Indonesian tribes still perform traditional masked-dances to represent nature, as the Hudoq dance of the Dayak people of Kalimantan- or to represent ancestor spirits. With the arrival of Hinduism in the archipelago, theRamayana and Mahabharata epics began to be performed in masked-dance. – Source : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Topeng

Well, i’ve done a photoshoot and the mask as the theme. It’s really awesome to introduce our culture via photos. And i’m really proud to wearing a mask original from my own country… Indonesia :)
