A boy holds a mask of the ten-faced Ravana. In the Indian epic of Ramayana, Ravana is depicted as an evil who kidnapped Rama’s wife Sita to the island of Lanka. But Ravana is also considered to be the most revered devotee of Lord Shiva, and is worshipped by Hindus in some parts of India, Sri Lanka, and Bali (Indonesia). In Indonesia, Ravana is also known by his other nickname, Dasamuka, which literrally means ‘Ten Faces’.
