Title: Wuku 6 – Gumbreg
Artist: Dadang Christanto
Medium: cast aluminium, enamel
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.
Gumbreg: Presided by a god named Cakra. Strong willed, impatient to see his wishes fulfilled, cannot be prevented. Generous and straightforward. This wuku is summed up as geter pater ing wiyati (a thundering voice in the sky), fond of talking and monopolises discussions.
