Wayang Krucil Gilig, a three-dimensional puppet of the comic character Menak Jingga. The puppet is made of wood, fibre, pigment, and gold leaf. It is painted, gilded, and carved. The figure is a male wearing a crown, neckcloth, kris dagger, and an elaborate skirt-cloth and trousers. It stands on a base from which a rod would once have protruded, but this was cut off at an unknown date. The rods for the arms are missing.
