PLEASE NOTE: Serious inquiries only. We are not a gallery set up for idle viewing pleasure. Our pieces posted for sale are currently in storage at a facility several miles from our home, and we can't afford the time or gasoline to drive back and forth simply to show them.

Wayang, also known as wajang, is a traditional form of puppet theatre play originating from the Indonesian island of Java Wayang refers to the entire dramatic show. Sometimes the leather puppet itself is referred to as wayang. Performances of wayang puppet theatre are accompanied by a gamelan orchestra in Java, and by gender wayang in Bali. The dramatic stories depict mythologies, such as episodes from the Hindu epics the Ramayana and the Mahabharata, as well as local adaptations of cultural legends. Traditionally, a wayang is played out in a ritualized midnight-to-dawn show by a dalang, an artist and spiritual leader; people watch the show from both sides of the screen.

This piece is from our large art collection, assembled over a more than 50-year time span. The collection consists of original paintings lithographs, photographs, drawings, etchings, and other types of prints, as well as some mixed media pieces, all of which we'll eventually be listing on Craigslist Marketplace. As our main concern is finding new, appreciative homes for the pieces, we're pricing them to sell, at prices well below fair market value. Thank you for visiting our listings, and please don't hesitate to message us if we may be of further help.
