Made Mulyani introduces Merdah, the clown servant, with an ornate crown and jovial expression. An important character in Balinese shadow puppet shows, Merdah tells jokes, yet his words carry timeless wisdom and his nature is brave and courageous. Acacia wood's natural grain adds to the beauty of this hand carved mask.
Please note that wood color and grain can vary significantly from one piece to the next; this makes each mask a unique piece of art.
