The variety of cultural arts include indigenous Indonesian culture scattered in areas throughout Indonesia, such as shadow puppet culture.

Shadow puppet is fully of noble values contained in it, which can be a life guidance for Javanese society. Shadow puppet is an adipeni and adiluhung art, it means that shadow puppet is not only a beautiful or aesthetic spectacle, but also as a guidance which it is contained ethics or moral virtue of life.
