Title: Wuku 12 – Kuningan
Artist: Dadang Christanto
Medium: cast aluminium, enamel, gold leaf
Price: $ 4,900
Inscriptions: title and artist signature on the base.
Notes: these works are hollow cast aluminium ‘tabletop’ sculptures with a solid base, weighing approximately 2kg each. There are 30 heads in the series, each wuku corresponding to a day of the Javanese Pawukon calendar and containing relevant traditional imagery.
Kuningan: Presided by a god named Endra, superior, noble, and may become a great figure or hold a high ranking position. Fine looking, distinguished bearings, a loner, tends to be arrogant but works thoroughly.
