We have been collecting shadow puppets (called "wayang kulit") since we first fell in love with traditional Javanese shadow theatre on our first trip to Java in 1983. They are becoming more expensive and its now harder to find decent second hand ones, so here are a few of our favourites.
These puppets are all full sized, authentic and made for puppeteers - not tourists. They have been well loved and well used and are in various states of repair. Many battles have been fought and tales told with these wonderful works of art!
