"Golekan is another name for the distinctive three-dimensional Indonesian puppets crafted from wood. Unlike traditional wayang golek figures, F. Widayanto's golekan are created using clay with a variety of decorative glazes. And instead of retelling ancient legends, they tend to suggest stories about today or even hint at possibilities for the future. With artist statement and essay by Sindhunata.." {Asia Art Archive}. Excellent condition with no inscriptions; stapled binding is sound. Loosely inserted are two news paper reviews: Sunday Observer and the Jakarta Post, both from October, 1997, and some photocopies.
