- Northern Bali as a coastal region is the path of global trade traffic from the beginning of the Christian Calendar so that the relations of Balinese people with the outside world are so intense and have an impact on the socio-cultural changes of the society, especially the of ornament art. Ornaments applied to temple buildings in Bali are the result of classical Hindu culture, but in the reliefs of the temple of Desa Lan Puseh in the village of Sudaji, North Bali describes multicultural cultures such as Hinduism, Buddhism, China, as well as Persia as well as elements of European culture. The formation of these ornaments is certainly through a long process involving external and internal factors. The process of dialogue and acculturation of foreign cultures towards local culture gives change and forms new idioms that leave their original forms, as well as new functions, symbols, and meanings in Balinese society. This research uses the socio-historical qualitative method to write chronologically the inclusion of the influences of foreign cultural elements on Balinese social life with visual analysis through the stages to be able to describe and reveal the transformation of relief forms in the temple. This paper also proves that elements of foreign culture such as Islam and European had enriched the ornamental arts of Balinese tradition.
