This puppet is antique and was actually used for several years in Javanese Shadow Theatre.
Ulo, the snake, is both a real and mythological animal, just like in western tradition. Here is depicted with an anthropomorphic look and a blue sinuous body. The wooden stick is a single one, as always for animal puppets, and the whole painting is a little stripped or faded away.
