This large shadow puppet depicts the monkey deity Hanuman. Hanuman was Rama's most trusted and valuable officer in the Rankien. During Rama's war against the demon king Toskanth, Rama asked Hanuman to infiltrate the court of Toskanth. Hanuman tricked Toskanth into believing that he had defected to the demon's side. Toskanth was so pleased by this that he made Hanuman the crown prince of his kingdom, replacing his son Indrajit, who Hanuman had ironi

This shadow puppet probably depicts the simian deity Hanuman. It is also possible that the puppet illustrates the demon king Toskanth instead. If it is Hanuman it portrays him during his time as Toskanth's heir. Hanuman tricked Toskanth earning the king's trust so that he could do reconnaissance on behalf of Rama. This puppet is probably made from cow leather. IT was heavily oiled when it was made to give it a black shine. It has retained enough o

This shadow puppet is made from either cow or water buffalo leather. It has four wooden sticks bound to the leather with twine for controlling the puppet. Most of the leather has lost its black shine and faded to a dark green. In places where the red paint was applied it has faded in various ways from a ruddy orange to light yellow. The leather is perforated with holes to create a fancy illuminated pattern around the central figure. This figure i

This shadow puppet appears to depict a tiger. It is made from eight overlapping pieces of very thin cow leather. The pieces are joined by small pieces of rope with knots on each end. This gives a pivot so each piece can move independently. The two largest pieces are the torso pieces front and back. The front torso piece has two legs attached to it and has the face painted on it. The back torso piece has the tail and the two other legs attached to

Peninj jaw. Two views of the lower jawbone and teeth of a large-toothed australopithecine from Peninj, next to Lake Natron, some 80 km northeast of Olduvai Gorge. The very small front teeth (incisors and canines) and very large cheek teeth (premolars and molars) characteristic of the robust australopithecine are well shown.

In this time, the prehumans made great advances - they walked upright, lived on the ground and may have used stones in their defense; Paranthropus: though he stood erect and had hominid features, Paranthropus represents an evolutionary dead end in man's ancestry.
