We here at Hunter Gatherer have had the fortune to acquire these treasures! This female puppet is unique because of her clothing, all hand sewn, her regal stance and her beautiful hand painted face with large expressive eyes. Her various layers of skirts, which are traditional, show quite a bit of wear for surely she danced the night away. Her beaded necklaces have seen better days but that's what makes her truly magical. The puppet measures 20 inches in length.
Hand Carved/Painted Indonesian Wood Rod Puppets. $1,000.00, via Etsy. I'm slightly obsessed with Wayang figures at the moment. I almost got one at a vintage shop in Toronto, but was too worried it would break in transport.
