Two of the central characters from the classic Hindu epic Mahabharata, Arjuna and Srikandi are depicted in this pair of traditional shadow puppets from Java. Mijiyono diligently works with leather and horn to handcraft this traditional wedded couple, featuring hand-painted clothing of blue and red. Puppets like these are typically used for performances known as wayang kulit. Each puppet is displayed atop a base of wadang wood.
