Wayang golèk (14) - Cotton, Wood - Java, Indonesia

Description
Wayang golèk (14) - Cotton, Wood - Java, Indonesia
mid 20th century - Good condition, used with some signs of wear

14 old Wayang Golek puppets from Java, Indonesia.
Unique: all puppets come from the same set, and were carved by the same Dalang or puppet player. Note the exceptional quality and finish!

The 14 characters of the puppets are (in the sequence of the pictures):
Arimbi
Satia Gondrong
Abimanyu
Aradea
Aswatama
Pandu, Rama,Lesmana,Sukmasejati
Samba
Yamawidura
Setyaki
Gatot Kaca
Jayadrata
Brajadenta
Brajamusti
Suyudana

The puppets were really used for the Javanese puppet game and are therefore not puppets for tourists. Traces of wear and tear due to play.

Pick up in Aalst (Belgium) or during a week day in Rotterdam (slower delivery time). I always look for the cheapest shipping method. If cheaper than indicated, I will pay the difference back to you.
