“There will come out a leak in the name of sasak is tuselak. the one who invites or we play it will be the victim. It’s as if we’re inviting all the genies above,” he said


Then, why is Lampan Lahat so full of mystical aura? A puppeteer Wildan said in the story of Serat Menak, he told the journey of the Prophet’s uncle, Amir Hamzah or in the Puppet known as Jayeng Rane. The story tells of Jayeng Rane spreading Islam and crushing the enemies of Islam.


Lampan means title or story, while Lahat means trap or grave. The story or fragment of Lampan Lahat contains the end of Jayeng Rane’s life who died on the battlefield against the enemies of Islam. In Islam, Amir Hamzah died in the battle of Uhud.


“In the grave or in the pit, it can also be interpreted as a grave. That’s where Jayeng Rane’s history ends with his war horse,” he said.


Puppeteer Wildan even said firmly that he would not dare to play Lampan Lahat even though he was paid any amount of money.


“If someone gives me Rp. 100 million to play (Lampan Lahat), I will not dare. I’m sorry, any mistake can run to descendants (become victims),” he said


Puppeteer Wildan explained that Jayeng Rane in the Sasak puppet is described with simple characteristics. Unlike the Javanese puppet, Jayeng Rane is depicted as Arjuna by wearing crowns and bracelets.

“Jayeng Rane in Javanese puppet is Arjuna, many bracelets, crowns, but in Sasak Puppet they are plain as a symbol of simplicity,” he said.


He explained that the characters in the puppet are divided into two, namely the left and right puppets, and the other is the puppet mountain. The left puppet depicts an arrogant antagonist, and the right puppet depicts the main character or hero and a good character.


In the Sasak Puppet, the Kawi language is used. The language is to make it easier for the audience, because it combines three languages, such as Sasak, Javanese and Balinese.


“Why do Sasak puppets use the kawi language, the middle line is that Sasak language enters, Javanese language enters and Balinese language enters. It is quickly understood by the public,” he said.


Wildan has been a puppeteer since 1973. Even when he was still in school, he always learned to make and play puppets. That’s why he is now often called for wayang shows.


He told it, the Sasak Puppet performances were filled with symbols that contained Islamic values. such as the nine pillars which mean nine guardians who spread Islam, the rectangular stage building which has four philosophical schools of thought in Islam, the musical accompaniment or the five drums which means the pillars of Islam.


“Actually, there are six drums, but Lanang and Wadon are husband and wife, so they are counted as one,” he said.


As well as the Puppeteer and all those involved in the performance, there are 13 people, who have a philosophical philosophy of the number of pillars of prayer. In fact, the ritual of releasing wayang is not random, there is a special prayer that is said
