  • The Wayang Potehi Photoseries
.
Glove puppetry is a type of opera using cloth puppets that originated during the 17th century in Zhangzhou of China's Fujian province. In China, this unique art has been around for over 3,000 years since the era of the Jin Dynasty.
.
Today, glove puppetry is called with the term "Wayang Potehi" (Wayang means "puppet" in Javanese). It was brought by Chinese immigrants between the 16th to 19th century. Wayang Potehi features characters and stories from Chinese Legends. The word Potehi itself is derived from the word ‘pou’ (fabric), ‘te’ (sackcloth), and ‘hi’ (puppet).
.
The puppets are played using all five fingers; the three middle fingers of the puppeteer control the head, while the thumbs and little finger control both hands of the puppets. The musical accompaniment for the performance consist of: gembreng, kecer or cymbals, cheh and puah, guitar, rebab, tambourine, trumpet, and piak-kok.
.
For the Chinese descendants living in Indonesia, Wayang Potehi serves not only as entertainment but serves also as social and ritual function since it is usually performed in temples, especially along the Central Java (Semarang) and East Java (Gudo-Jombang). Wayang Potehi tells stories taken from various Chinese legends such as Sam Kok, Sam Pek Eng Tay, and Li Si Bin, especially nearing the grand celebrations of the Chinese New Year.
