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.

Wayang Kulit shadow puppet by Tri Suwarno from Java, Indonesia, c.2010.
Water buffalo hide body painted with water-based paints, with water buffalo horn and bamboo handles (13" h. x 5 1/2" w. x 1/2" d., 21" h. including 8" handle).
This puppet commemorates the life and death of Mbah Marijan (Maridjan), the hereditary spiritual guardian of Java's Mt. Merapi volcano.  When the volcano erupted in October 2010, the 83 year old "volcano keeper" refused to leave his post.  He was later found dead in prayer position in his home, 5 km from the volcano summit.  See the BBC story Spiritual guardian of Indonesian volcano dies
