Still posting my finds at Tugu Hotel, Malang.

A beautiful Javanese Wayang Kulit

or Javanese Shadow Puppet.

The puppets are held by the puppeteer

behind a screen or a piece of white cloth,

lights are from the side and above,

shadows of the puppets are cast on screen.

Audience watch the shadows

on the opposite side of the screen.

The puppet’s body is usually made

from buffalo hide and

mounted on bamboo sticks.

The puppeteer is called a Dalang.
