Robot Papercraft - Portable Shadow Puppet Show

Shadow Puppet PapercraftSal Azad brings us another fantastic papercraft showcasing his cultural background/heritage. Wayang Kulit refers to shadow puppets prevalent throughout Indonesia. Wayang is the Indo-Malay word for "theatre" while Kulit means "skin" - refering to the leathery material used in creating the puppets.

Wayang Kulit
Wayang kulit shadow puppets perform Indonesian versions of Indian Hindu epics and is considered to be one of the oldest continuous traditions of storytelling in the world. Have you seen one before?

In 2003, UNESCO designated Wayang Kulit, a shadow puppet theater and the best known of the Indonesian wayang, as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

Sal applied his wonderful design on a robot papercraft model from TDDK (TheDayDreamKid), which fit perfectly on its boxy shape. The result is the Pertunjukan Portabel Wayang Kulit or Portable Puppet Show papercraft robot.
