Details

The beautiful sinden wears a florid crown in this extraordinary wall mask by Hely and Endang. Carved of pule wood and painted by hand, the crown features sequins that are sealed and painted over to create intriguing textures. In Java, a sinden is a female soloist who sings accompanied by gamelan or traditional Javanese musical instruments. They may perform in unaccompanied music, dance, or wayang (theatre) performances. To become a sinden, she must perform at a traditional wayang, as well as go through an initiation process that includes singing, drinking holy water, tearing up a hibiscus leaf symbolizing fidelity, and swearing an oath.
