Show us a cool shadow.
My grandfather was a "dalang". Dalang is a Javanese storyteller. But, it is more than just a storyteller. A dalang also plays wayang kulit or puppets made of leather. Wayang kulit is the best known of the Indonesian wayang. Kulit means skin and refers to the leather construction of the puppets that are carefully chiseled with very fine tools and supported with carefully shaped buffalo horn handles and control rods.
Historically, the performance consisted of shadows cast on a cotton screen cast an oil lamp. Today, the source of light in Java is most often a halogen electric light.
