Palelintangan. Although ntot off great interest because of content, this palelintangan is of major importance because of it is by the late Gusti Nyoman Lempad of Ubud. Jane Belo, in notes about Gusti Nyoman Lempad, mentions that Colin McPhee had G. Lempad do this work as a copy (somewhat embellished) of an old faded palelintangan from Klungkung (perhaps one off the other palelintangan in the collection). High quality work on bark paper.
