About Setia Darma Masks & Puppets House
The Setia Darma Masks and Puppets House is a remarkable exhibition hall with a mission to save some of Indonesia's most beautiful heritage items. It fills in as a great cultural and educational part of Bali. The house right now houses over a 1,000 covers and more than 4,000 manikins from everywhere throughout the Indonesian archipelago, Africa, China, Latin America and Europe.
Setia Darma's first joglo highlights customary shadow manikins, some idiosyncratic and contemporary, for example, Prayitno's own ‘self portraiture’ and that of Barack Obama. The last was made amid the US presidential decisions and will most likely turn into a chronicled trinket. Different examples line the dividers in view of root, and before long you'll see that each bear special attributes, yet draw motivation from comparable sources, for example, the Hindu sagas of Mahabharata and Ramayana.
Highlights: Some of the example from around the globe incorporate Sicilian stick manikins going back to the sixteenth century and puppets reminiscent of Pinocchio, together with very nitty gritty Bunraku symbols from Japan from the eighteenth century.
