Selected by Retour De Voyage

Retour de Voyage couldn’t resist that mustache. The bright colors are painted by hand on this wooden mask and the big smile it bears keeps all your worries away by looking at it. He makes us laugh with his big eyes and especially the aplomb with which he assumes to adorn himself thus.

The Mahabharata ("The Great War of the Bhārata" or "Great Story of the Bhārata") is a Sanskrit epic of Hindu mythology. It is a mythic-historical saga, containing warlike deeds that are said to have taken place around the end of the first millennium BC. This immense epic contains multiple micro-narratives, episodes and digressions, revolving around one main plot: a dynastic struggle between two royal families, with the throne of the kingdom of Hastinapura at stake. This struggle lasts for years and has several reversals of fortune. In Indonesia, this epic is very common in the country's folklore. As a result, many performances have been staged in Indonesian theatres. Among the three forms of theatre present in Indonesia, masked theatre is one of the oldest forms of theatre.

Retour De Voyage has selected this mask made of painted wood, which allowed the actors who wore it to represent the stories of the Mahabharata and transmit teachings in psychology, political science, ethics, history and spirituality.
