WAYANG PUPPETS

Wayang is a form of puppet theater art in many parts of South East Asia. Specifically in Indonesia, the art form celebrated their culture, where dramatic stories were told. Depending on the region, wayang shows are telling about religion, or mythologies like from Hindu as well as local adaptations of cultural legends. A wayang is played by a ‘dalang’, an artist and spiritual leader.

There are different types of Wayang puppets, mainly Wayang Kulit (=leather) made of leather and very flat in body and the Wayang Golek, which are three-dimensional wooden rod puppets.

The wayangs specifically part of the ArteGia collection are Wayang Golek from Cirebon, West Java. These 3D wayang puppets are operated from below a wooden rod that runs through the body to the head, and by sticks connected to the hands. They are also known as Wayang Cepak, referring to the ‘Cepak’ stories that chronicle the spread of islam into West Java.

The Wayang Cepak Cirebon is sold in pairs and are excluding a stand. They can be easily placed on a empty wine bottle (as presented on the pictures).
