Just out of Ubud you can find the village of Mas. Various villages around Bali specialise in particular craft. Mas is famous for it's mask making.

The masks were originally produced for sacred temple dances, but with the advent of tourism, are now also created for wall decorations.

A mask carver is called a 'undagi tapel' and the tradition is usually passed down through families. Mask making is a respected occupation and is practised by members of the Brahman case since they know the required rituals involved in making a sacred mask.
