Just a quick shot of one of my Wayang Golek Puppets today. This is Arjuna.

He is the third of the Pandawa brothers. Son of Pandu and Kunti and begotten by Indra, the King of the Gods.
A refined knight, friend of Kresna's (Krishna) and a favorite of the women and thus has many wives and children.
He is not intelligent, but refined, friendly, cheerful and calm. He is self-confident, but not proud.
