Created by Wayan
Gamelan, the indonesian name for orchestras in Java and Bali, where bronze percussion instruments predominate. The number and type of instrument will vary according to the genre of music played.
The Gamelan is an integral part of Indonesian life, whether for shadow or puppet theatre, masked dances, processions, religious ceremonies or solemn feasts.
They were carved carefully in albizia wood and then hand painted to make them as realistic as possible. These 5 players represent the art of Wayan, wood carver on the island of Bali.
