Antique Wayang Puppets
Here's a wide selection of true antique Wayang Kulit directly from the puppeteer's trunk. Our puppets have been performing "The Ramayana" and "The Mahabharata" epics for several decades all around central Java. Their acting is the oldest tradition of storytelling in the world and has been proclaimed by UNESCO as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. The repertory is still transmitted orally within the families of puppeteers, musicians and artisans. Enjoy reading about each character.
