It is a Wayang Golek theatre puppet representing one of the main positive characters of Mahabharata — noble Arjuna. He is the son of Kunti and Pandu, the third of five noble Pandava brothers; a perfect archer. He has a number of nicknames and names: the luminous, the glowing, the silver, the winner, the owner of the Gandava bow and many others. He is the most resolute of the Pandava brothers and an example of a noble hero. Arjuna has a white face, narrow eyes, a straight nose and a small slim body as well as a peculiar haircut, black hair curled in a sophisticated way, typical of the Pandava brothers. His lowered gaze is evidence of his self-control. His moves are self-controlled and full of grace; his voice is low and delicate. He is very polite and courteous to those he respects but merciless to his enemies, whom he kills ruthlessly. Arjuna is gifted with extreme power. It is a Javanese 3D puppet composed of three principal parts: a head with a neck, a short torso, and a stick put through a hole drilled through the torso upon which the head is mounted. The puppet has no legs, just arms operated with sticks fixed to them. The puppet is dressed in a batik skirt and is controlled from beneath by means of a stick put through the torso and little sticks fixed to the arms.

Marian Raciborski’s Indonesian collection

Marian Raciborski was a botanist who stayed in Java from 1896 to 1900 at the invitation of the Dutch government to conduct research on ferns and crop plants; he worked in the Botanical Garden in Buitenzorg (the present-day Bogor), where he wrote 31 scientific works.

Marian Raciborski was a botanist who stayed in Java from 1896 to 1900 at the invitation of the Dutch government to conduct research on ferns and crop plants; he worked in the Botanical Garden in Buitenzorg (the present-day Bogor), where he wrote 31 scientific works. Raciborski was one of the first Poles to see the beauty and originality of the rich culture of the Indonesian islands, a small part of which was also brought back home by him in the form of natural specimens (for the Botanical Garden of the Jagiellonian University) and pieces of art and artisan objects (for the Ethnographic Museum in Kraków). His entire ethnographic collection, of over 200 artefacts was donated by him to the Ethnographic Museum in Kraków just before he died in 1917, among which there was: a valuable collection of weapons, especially kris and other types of daggers (over sixty); a large collection of puppets from shadow puppet and puppet theatres (74); valuable fabrics with hand-applied batik techniques (10) and a number of other everyday objects from the island of Java, as well as many objects from Sumatra and Borneo.
The Indonesian collection of Raciborski, though it is not numerically large, has special value; the objects he collected were not mass produced for tourists, but had been created for the needs of the soul; their creators had made a huge effort to make the works as perfect as possible, because only then could they properly fulfil their role. The awareness of this contributes to the fact that today these objects seem to have their own soul and power to influence the viewer and their imagination.
