Mint, sealed deck of “Java’s Classical Wayang” cards made by Toelen of Jakarta, Indonesia c.2000. Wayang is a Javanese word for a theatrical performance with puppets or human dancers. In 2003, UNESCO designated wayang kulit, a shadow puppet theater, as a “Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.” The Jokers and court cards of the deck depict Hindu-Buddhist figures prominent in Wayang, and the pips are an embellished design. The faces of these cards can be seen at the World Web Playing Card Museum (WWPCM #04493); I have elected not to break the wrapper of this deck.
The deck has 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers. There is a leaflet with background information that usually accompanies these cards and I assume that this deck has it. The cards are bridge size, measuring 88mm x 57mm, and are in the original box.
The cards (and booklet) are mint and sealed.
Thanks for visiting.
