Around the Bromo volcano

Power and Mystery

Passage to Mount Bromo invokes a crossing on some long-forgotten moon. Craggy rock formations, gnarled and veined, stab at the mist as shadowy figures fade in and out of perception.

As with the rest of Indonesia, the unspoken gaps between spaces imbue the country with power both obscure and mysterious.

It is here, in the cauldron of Java’s Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park, that lies the figurehead of Indonesia, the symbol of its otherworldly power.
