Wayang klitik, also known as a Krucil Gepeng puppet. Made of carved, painted, and gilded wood. The arms are made of hide, and the rods are made of horn. They are attached with fibre. There are fibre tassels at the ends of the rods. The central support rod was cut off at some point. The character is a royal male. The figure wears an elaborate headdress, skirt-cloth, trousers, and a keris ritual dagger. The downcast face indicates a refined character.

- Curator's comments
- The writing on the foot giving the name of the character is now very unclear. All that can be seen is 'Radja,' an old spelling for 'Raja' meaning king.
