This version of Snakes and Ladders is inspired by Balinese life and mythology. At the bottom the turtle Bedawang Nala carries the world and is accompanied by the two dragons Basuki and Anantaboga. Spiritual nirvana is represented by Mount Agung and the heavenly realm above. The other illustrations are symbols of fertility, creation, enlightenment, abundance, death, disease, disaster and knowledge. Many of these symbolic drawings are inspired by life in and around the Balinese kitchen.” Maya Kerthyasa, illustrator.
