Indonesian Ramayana Wayan Golek hand carved and artist signed puppet head of King Ravana circa 1900. Weighty wooden mannequin like head, with demon like stare. This rare boldly fashioned primitive stands about fourteen inches tall, with massive presence.

Incredible museum display quality, with exciting hand painted details. Blues reds and warm golden hues mix like friendly adversaries, with the sweet patina of aged wood. Deep carving of high style is seen in the eyes, beard, mustache and ears. Fierce dragons serve as crown epaulettes flanking the sides of Ravana’s head.

Now let me tell you the story…
The Ramayana, a classic epic lesson from ancient India was first written about 500 B.C.E. by a poet named Valmiki. The evil King Ravana, whose head you are considering kidnapped the Hero Rama’s virtuous wife Sita a.k.a. Shinta, a real prize I might add. He ran away with there to his kingdom in Sri Lanka. Lord Rama, a.k.a. The Prince Of Ayutthaya was quite the South Asian Prodigal Son. He left home early, as his Brahma Mom and Dad, Visrawasa and Kaikasi felt he was not exactly ready for power. During his exile, temporary spousal separation and final reuniting he became a majestic leader. Making alliances with his brother Vibhishana and Hanuman the monkey General King.

The Ramayana or story of Rama is also known in Thailand as the Ramakien. There Ravana was called Tosakanth. This gospel spread through out South Asia into the western Pacific Rim. The main players, each with their own devotees have distinctly recognizable attributes, any one from the region would recognize. Ravana, with his dark beard and mustashe and his dragon laden countenance, are in particular, a big hit when played by the dalang or puppet master. Ravana signified scholarly wisdom, and could play the Vienna a musical instrument. Only if he used his wit for niceness instead of evil as Maxwell Smart agent 86 would say.

Wayan Golek or Javanes Opera is a traditional performance art in Bali, Java and several other regions of the Malay Peninsula. To celebrate the Ramayana at festivals weddings and circumcisions, these ancient heroes were made by artisans with unusual skill. Pride was especially evident, as this piece is boldly carved and signed DILUKISOLEHMANDA, which VERY loosely translated from the language of Indonesia, Bahasa means, This was created by M. It is unlikely the tribal or primitive art collector will find a rarity of this magnitude.

God Bless Spell Check!
