Details

The legendary lovers of the Indian epic poem Ramayana are depicted in this exquisite pair of Javanese shadow puppets, handcrafted by Mujiyono. The stately figures of Rama and Sita come to life in leather that is hand-painted to reveal their colorful openwork garments.

The craftsmanship is exquisite and detailed. I am so happy that there are artists in this world who produce this ancient craft so we keep it alive for our grandchildren.

"These are now displayed in my curio cabinet."

I bought 2 of these Gunungan. Very beautiful, intricate detail perforated leather and painstakingly painted. It?s sure an eye catching display, to add to my shadow puppet (wayang puppet) theatre in my curio cabinet. I am originally from Indonesia, and had never seen such a beautiful Gunungan like the one made by Mujiyono.
