Wayang klitik, also known as a Krucil Gepeng puppet. Made of carved, gilded, and painted wood with a rod made of horn and attached with fibre. The arm is made of animal hide. One rod is missing, and the central rod has been cut off. There is a fibre tassel at the end of the rod. The puppet can be used to play the character of a young princess, as indicated by the small size, downward facing face and the clothing which is made of sumptuous textiles. The downcast, pale face indicates a highly refined character.
