On November 2003, the UN acknowledged Indonesian wayang as a Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity. Wayang is an Indonesian indigenous performance art. While the term is used to refer to kinds of puppet theatre, sometimes the puppet itself is referred to as wayang. Wayang kulit, or shadow puppets, are without a doubt the best known of the Indonesian wayang. The stories are usually drawn from the Hindu epics the Ramayana and the Mahabharata from India or ancient Java. Up till now, Museum Wayang has up to 4,000 wayang collection.
