d’Topeng Museum Should Be Preserved

dTopeng Museum Should Be PreservedANCESTRAL legacies and diverse Indonesian cultural products are becoming a collection of d’Topeng Kingdom Museum and have captivated the hearts of leaders and people, both nationally and internationally.

Aside from being captivated, not a few of them left a message in order the cultural preservation efforts could be well maintained. Some prominent figures that were enamored with the collection and idealism of the d'Topeng were Mrs. Ani Yudhoyono, Mrs. Herawati Boediono, Jero Wacik, Mari Elka Pangestu, Dewi Motik, Emil Salim, Mrs. Okka Hatta Rajasa, state delegates, Mrs. Ayu Pastika and others.

Although the support for d’Topeng to keep preserve the culture continued to flow, it also faced a few obstacles to overcome. Rapid growth of Bali tourism tending to give more emphases on commercial side became one of the problems. Moreover, location of d’Topeng Kingdom Museum on Jalan Setia Budi, the Simpang Siur, Kuta, was a very strategic area.

“We recognize that many challenges are faced in the development of d’Topeng. The idea of founding d’Topeng was initially thought a crazy idea because people are rarely desperate to establish a museum amidst the rapid development of tourist accommodation such as hotel, condotel and others. In addition, there are also parties interested in the location of d’Topeng to be converted into accommodation facilities,” said Marketing Communication of d’Topeng Kingdom Museum Elly T. Halsamer. She said the obstacles should be faced as good as possible.

Idealism of d’Topeng was preserving the culture as it had been already embedded in the mind of its founder. Therefore, the existence of the museum should be maintained. (BTN/kmb)
