Sbaek Thom (literary meaning large leather) is a traditional art form from Cambodia. This shadow theatre recently made its way to Penang, being invited as a participant for our recently ended Georgetown Festival celebrations. Being awarded by UNESCO as a cultural rarity, it narrates solely the Hindu epic of Ramayana. Here, two puppeteers were seen rehearsing for the one night performance. Picture taken at Khoo Kongsi Square, Armenian Street.

Location: Penang, Malaysia.
