- Curator's comments
- Old records state that this character is Kuda Talarsa, an old spelling of Kuda Tilarsa. Scholars have also stated that this puppet is Kuda Tilarsa (Rudy Wiratama, July 2018), but the notation on the foot states that the character is Bramana. The mistake probably lies with Raffles, as Bramana is a refined character. Kuda Tilarsa is not, and the puppet here is also not refined, as indicated by the upright head and round, red eye.
