Wayang klitik, also known as a Krucil Gepeng puppet. Made of carved, painted, and gilded wood. One arm and one rod are missing. The remaining arm is made of hide, and the rod is made of horn. They are attached with fibre. 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 Kedali Putih. The figure wears an elaborate headdress, necklace, a keris ritual dagger, and skirt-cloth. While the downcast face indicates refinement, the pink face colour suggests an active nature.
