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.
