A wayang golek cepak puppet from the Cirebon region of Java. Cepak puppets are traditionally used to perform the wayang menak stories of Amir Hamza or episodes from the Panji epic. This puppet dates to the early 20th century and has been painted using natural pigments, now worn, giving somewhat beatific look to his face.
