Batara Brama puppet is pretty large and really tangled up in beautiful colors of turquoise, blu, purple... and showing an elegant white collar shirt. 
It is clearly old and used, as you can see from stripped colors in various parts, some restorations and a little damage on the dress tail. It is a beautiful and decorative antique. 

Son of Batara Guru and Uma Batari, he is the God of Fire. He’s married to Goddess Saraswati and is told to be the teacher of raden Kakrasana. Batara Brama often followed his father Batara Guru during his trips to Ngarcaparada, as he would become the king of that land. Opposed by Semar and the Pandavas, he engages an endless fight with them, showing that even Gods have limits if they behave uncorrectly.
