Malaikat Wayang Wahyu
Wayang puppets have been used for centuries in Indonesia to tell the stories of the ancient epics, the Ramayana and the Mahabarata, as well as ancient myths. Puppets fall into two major classifications - wayang kulit - the leather or shadow puppet of Central Java, and wayang golek - wooden puppets of West Java. Less commonly seen are the Wayang Klitik, a flat wooden puppet.
