JOGLO WOODEN HOUSE PILLAR BASES
GALLERY PILLAR BASES
The sakit (spiritual strength) of a pavilion resides in the bases of the pillars (sendi). On the aesthetic level, the sendí is similar to the base of a statue and highlights the part
a lofty, slender, spacious pavilion above a somewhat massive stylobate. Traditionally, the pillars are not firmly attached to their sendi, so they can swing and even lift slightly in the event of earthquakes. The lower end of the pillar is embedded in the stump so that the pillar can not get out of its base. The midday is often carved in blocks of soft parasitic stone, the Balinese can not resist the pleasure to carve them.
In the temples, these sculptures often represent winged lions.
In JOGLO wooden houses but also LIMASAN, the pillars are often fixed on carved bases
