As an art and culture enthusiast, you must be amazed by this one in the Representative List of The Intangible Cultural Heritage of Human from UNESCO. One of the world’s cultural heritage that has been designated by UNESCO on November 7, 2003, wayang kulit originating from Indonesia performs by conveying a message of good conquest of adversity through integrity, honesty, and giving back to society. The word “wayang” is from “ma Hyang”, which means towards the spirituality of the Almighty, or the word “wayang” which means the technique of performing shadows (shadows/puppets) on the screen. The day that Puppet is designated as a world cultural heritage has become the commemoration of the National Puppet Day in Indonesia.
The wayang kulit show, which is an ancient storytelling art from Indonesia that has developed over ten centuries, is even called the “Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity” by UNESCO. Wayang originates from the island of Java, flourished at the royal courts of Java and Bali as well as in rural areas, and has spread to other islands (Lombok, Madura, Sumatra, and Borneo). Due to its complexity and complex musical style, wayang evolved into various local performance styles and musical accompaniments.
