The team, founded by Malaysian duo Tintoy Chuo and Take Huat, said each puppet takes more than 100 hours to craft, build and paint.

The art of Wayang Kulit shadow puppetry is more than a thousand years old and originated in the royal courts of the Indonesian islands, brought to the islands by Indian traders.
