Hello Puppet Fans!

These are some samples of Javanese wayang kulit - shadow puppets, that is.

These are Javanese made puppets of Prince Rama and Princess Sinta. They served as my models.

This is Wibisana and his daughter Trijata. They are friends of Prince Rama and Princess Sinta. I made them out of posterboard.

In this detail of Trijata you can almost make out the little holes and whatnot that I had to cut out so that the shadow has interior shape and texture, not just a silhouette.

And these are the tools that I used to make them. They are on extended loan from my friend Catherine, who also makes puppets.
