Details

Gio is inspired by the legend of Jaka Tarub to design this impressive wall mask. Hand-carved of albesia wood, the mask portrays Jaka's face covered by leaves. It refers to the part of his story when he hid in the forest, spying on seven angels who were playfully bathing by the river.

Jaka, the story continues, hid one of the angels' shawl, not knowing they were magical. When the angels decided to fly back to heaven, the youngest one whose shawl was missing had to remain on earth. Her name was Nawang Wulan and Jaka came out of hiding to console her, not revealing his mischief. He took her home and soon they fell in love, and had a child. Nawang Wulan magically provided Jaka with copious amounts of rice in the granary - something that Jaka had no knowledge of. But one day he disobeyed a simple request by Nawang Wulan, and with that action her magic powers came to an end. When the rice was gone, Nawang Wulan happened to find her missing shawl, which could restore her heavenly powers. She decided to return to heaven, but before flying back home, she asked Jaka to build a hut next to their home and place their baby girl there so she could come at night and nursed her. Nawang continued to care for her family from heaven.
