Wayang Kulit -- Ghost Puppets


The Indonesian word 'wayang' is derived from a word meaning 'shadow' or 'ghost'. These intricately cut and perforated shadow puppets are made from buffalo hide. Wayang Kulit shadow puppets are prevalent in Java and Bali, are without a doubt the best known of the Indonesian wayang.

The stories are usually drawn from the Ramayana, the Mahabharata or the Serat Menak. The island of Lombok has developed its own style of Serat Menak called Wayang Sasak.
