Barong is a well known mythological dance in Bali and it is narrating the fight between good and evil. Barong represents the good spirit and Rangda the evil spirit. The Barong is a large lion type creature. A battle ensues and the Barong's followers begin to attack Rangda with their daggers. Rangda, being a witch, is able to use magical powers to turn the daggers against their owners, who fall into a trance and try to stab themselves. The Barong, also having magical powers, protects his followers from harm and Rangda retreats into the forest to rest and prepare for the next battle. The trance of the Barong`s followers is often very real and therefore there is always a priest on hand to revive the dancers with holy water.
