Designed by papertoy designer Faisal Azad (salazad). Ondel ondel is very familiar in Jakarta Indonesia, as it a part of native jakarta heritage (betawi). Ondel-ondel is a large human giant like puppet which about ± 2.5 m in height and with a diameter of ± 80 cm, made of woven bamboo, built like a cage, so the puppeteer can wear and animate it from inside. Male Ondel-ondel is painted in red, while the female painted in white color. These forms show many similarities to those in several other areas. This culture may have come from minority region in china, such as Yunan. I saw a program on discovery channel about Yunan culture, very similar to some of indonesian culture, espesially betawi and dayak culture.
