A striking early 20th century wayang kulit 'shadow theatre' puppet. Handcrafted from leather with intricate handpainted detailing. Articulated neck and head for movement. This shadow puppet was detailed to such an extent because in traditional wayang kulit theatre, viewers could sit in front of the puppeteer to observe the shadow play or behind the puppeteer to observe the actual figures.
This vintage shadow puppet comes with a custom plinth base, making it a unique display piece that will stand out in any space.
Height (with base and extended head): 64cm / 25"
Width (snout to tail extended): 46cm / 18"
