Carnevale di Lula :  Su Battileddu . E'  una delle più impressionanti maschere del carnevale sardo. Ha il viso sporco di sangue e annerito dalla fuliggine e il corpo ricoperto di pelli di pecora e montone. Sul capo porta due corna fra le quali viene fissato uno stomaco di capra, mentre sulla pancia, sotto i campanacci, uno stomaco di bue riempito di sangue, che viene bucato di tanto in tanto. Su Battileddu è la vittima sacrificale del carnevale.
