Wayang Kulit design

This is the new painting I just finished based on Wayang Kulit, the shadow puppet play. Kersna is the name of the character. Originally, all Wayang Kulit puppets are made of buffalo hide parchement, and then painted and gilded with gold foil. This time to Java, I am going to watch how it is done and how the artists paint the delicate design.
