Wayang klitik, also known as a Krucil Gepeng puppet. Made of carved, painted, and gilded wood. The arms are made of hide, and the rod is made of horn and is attached with fibre. The end of one arm and the rod are missing. There is a fibre tassel at the end of the rod. The central support rod was cut off at some point. The character is a high-ranking male called Menak Supetak. The figure wears an elegant headdress, skirt-cloth, and trousers with luxury Indian trade textile patterns. The downcast face indicates a refined character.

- Curator's comments
- The writing on the foot gives the name of the character, though it is not entirely clear. 'Soepettak' or possibly 'Soepeitak.' Both would be old Dutch spellings.
