Bade (cremation towers) are usually made during ngaben ceremonies, specifically to carry the body to the grave, where the body is burned. As a trusted undagi of Ubud Castle, Lempad was entrusted with the design of the magnificent Bade when the king died. This mock-up is of an 11-topped bade, which is the highest number of roofs of any bade..
