Over the last year the Indigo Arts website has remained active despite the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.   Under current rules I have been able to resume operations but must limit visitors to the gallery, by appointment only.   I am able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times have increased during this period.  

Note:  USPS has been so slow that we recommend avoiding it entirely, at least for the present.  Parcels sent by 2 or 3 Day Priority Mail may take 2 to 4 weeks to arrive.
Please stay safe in these difficult times.  
We wish you all a healthier, saner and more civil 2021.

One of the Javanese puppets, created at the time of Javanese kingdom of Mataram in 1552 has a special feature, hair of fire, bowlegged and a forehead like a rooster. Together with his colleagues, he appears in the Buta Prepat flower war.
This giant is actually bald. Perspiration from his scalp steams in the form of combustible gas. The giants head can be in a state of intense burning flames. That is why the Giants name is Rambutgeni.
When his head is in a state of intense burning, he is able to burn anything in its path.
