Malaysian artists have put a creative twist on some of the world's most beloved comic book characters.
Fusion Wayang Kuilt, a group of Malaysian artists, has recreated DC superheroes Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman as traditional Malaysian shadow puppets.
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.
The Superman puppet was originally created for an exhibit last August in Penang, Malaysia.
Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman, the stars of the upcoming Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, were part of that exhibit.
Other Justice League heroes, like The Flash, have also been created.
This reimagined Green Lantern actually carries a green lantern.
This set of DC puppets is not the first time Fusion Wayang Kulit has created shadow puppets based on pop culture. The group also has crafted Star Wars and Bruce Lee sets.
