Ida Bagus Putu Tantera (1917–)

Similar to his elder brother Togog, Tantra lived a poor life. He did not go to school and could not speak Malay. He worked mainly at the coffee plantations and died young. He is known to have danced the gambuh.  (H. Geertz 1994: 112)

Tantera learnt how to draw from his older brother Togog. He never met Bonnet or Spies and was not a member of the Pita Maha collective. There are seventeen pictures by him in the Bateson-Mead Commission (H. Geertz 1994: 112).
