"These are now displayed in my curio cabinet."

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.
