In the "Wuku" series of paintings, Javanese artist Lugiono celebrates traditional wayang characters with the ancient Wuku Balinese lunar calendar. In this painting Lugiono portrays two people, with Kala, from a Balinese legend, holding his hands up in the air. He is a Langkir - a person born during the week of the same name. According to the Wuku calendar, people born during this week are usually temperamental, greedy, uncivilized and stubborn. They are unable to protect the helpless, they like to boast and are therefore disliked by many.

Developed by Bali Aga people, the Wuku lunar calendar includes 210 days divided into 30 weeks or Wuku, varying from one to ten days. Each week has a name and number, which can be auspicious or inauspicious, and corresponds to a specific activity. Each week is believed to also describe types of personality according to birth.
