Balinese girl in purple and gold costume raises arms in welcome dance

A Balinese girl in a purple and gold silk costume raises her arms in a welcome dance.

Wearing a headdress of gold and fresh flowers, the dancer looks towards her outstretched right hand that is bent back at the wrist. Her left arm is bent at the elbow with her palm facing her headdress. The dancer's knees are slightly bent with her weight on her left leg and her toes elevated.
