Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures


Shadow puppet and human wayang theatrical performances have been staged since 930 AD.


The carving on the shield depicts the typical Wayang puppet head profile.


These performance pieces are quite old and come from Central Java.  I was told that the pieces are from the 1920s or 1930s.  In good shape.


Kris can be held by the cord on the waist of the puppet figure (see photo #3)


An outstanding wall hanging.  Stands not included.


For the Serious Collector.
