Details

Mujiyono of Java designs this exquisite set of four handcrafted traditional Indonesian wayang kulit, shadow puppets made of perforated, elaborately painted leather. Such puppets were used in nighttime performances, usually on such important occasions as birthdays or anniversaries. This set of puppets are the punokawan, which always appear in the second act of a wayang performance as servants to the hero of the story. Made of leather parchment, the puppets are perforated to allow intricate designs to be revealed when shadows are cast, and meticulously painted with black bodies and clothing in orange, red, and gold. The puppets are attached to a buffalo horn rod and come with a round wood display base, which is detached for shipping.

The craftsmanship is exquisite and detailed. I am so happy that there are artists in this world who produce this ancient craft so we keep it alive for our grandchildren.

"These are now displayed in my curio cabinet."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought 2 of these Gunungan. Very beautiful, intricate detail perforated leather and painstakingly painted. It?s sure an eye catching display, to add to my shadow puppet (wayang puppet) theatre in my curio cabinet. I am originally from Indonesia, and had never seen such a beautiful Gunungan like the one made by Mujiyono.
