Small iconography 

Rakshasa is the hindu term for demon. The Balinese make sacrifices, attempt to pacify, and pray to these demons, just as to other gods. Sculptures and reliefs of Rakshasas often adorn the entrances to temples and bridges. Armed with a club, long teeth and moustache, they are said to ward off evil – for only a demon can keep demons at bay and protect the holy precinct.
