Foreword

For my beloved husband Rodney in appreciation for your unending patience and enduring love.

How better to tell a tale from Bali than through the beautiful colours and vision of the many talented artists from an enchanted isle. The works can be purchased through the numerous galleries in Bali.

Ady S

I Wy Lantir
