WAYANG KULIT – BIMA

Bima

After the Tattoo Convention Rotterdam 2016 (thanks everyone for dropping by!), last week Ade worked on an upper arm design inspired by a figure found in Wayang Kulit.

BIMA

Bima_2

 

Bima is the second of the Pandawa (Pandava) brothers and a leading character in the epic Mahabharata. He is a strong and bold character as reflected in his round eyes and wide
stance. He was surrounded by a whirlwind wherever he went and he is also instantly recognisable by his long fingernails that act as his weapon (Pancanaka).

He is seen as a heroic figure and known as a powerful figure, he is always rude and intimidating for the enemy, even though his heart soft. Bima characteristics are brave, steadfast, strong, stoic, obedient and honest, and he considers all people equal. He never curses or sits in front of a person he talks to. He has three wives and three children. Having descended from the wind god Vayu, Bima has the ability to fly, as does his half-brother Hanuman (Hanoman) and his son Ghatotkacha.

The vast majority of the ‘Wayang’ plays performed are drawn from the two great Hindu epics, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata with as well as stories of Javanese origin. ‘Wayang kulit’ is considered as the highest of the Javanese performing arts. Performed in the royal courts of Java as early as the ninth century, this tradition continues to be treasured as one of the ‘pusaka’ or sacred heirlooms of the court. ‘Wayang kulit’ is traditionally performed on ritual days and religious ceremonies. It has also been adapted more recently for television and public education campaigns.

Here a nice example of some Wayang kulit play showing the character Bima.

2015 -> 2016

2015-2016_800px

The year is slowly coming to an end…and we can say, 2015 was again a great, productive, exciting year!

A small overview; This year, Ade joined 3 conventions (Rotterdam, Frankfurt, Paris), he got published in some amazing books (for the last publication of his work, check below), we traveled to Antwerp, Berlin &  Milan and off course Ade was very happy to work on all the great and sometimes challenging designs he made for you guys this year! Big thanks to you all!

Soon we will take a well deserved break from work / vacation to relax and to spend some time with our family’s, to recharge and hunt for new idea’s. But in the new year we will return, rested and full of new inspiration!

If you’re interested in an appointment with Ade in the new year, you can still send your requests to thisis369@gmail.com and please include all relevant information, see list here.

Because where ‘off’ the job during our vacation, it can take a while before you receive a reply back from us, but Ade will start replying his emails & booking new people in when he’s back in The Netherlands and is making his schedule for later next year. Thanks in advance for your patience!
