This statue is very famous in Java. Commonly there are two as package as the “guard” in the gate of important building. The name is Reco Gladag 🙂
There is joke about it and surprisingly many people are tricked by this joke.
“Reco Gladag will smile when it listen the sounds of train”. Many people take a moment to think and it becomes more dramatic since there are still many Javanese myths there. “Really?”. “Yes when it listens the sound of the train it will will smile, but unfortunately it cannot listen anything” 🙂
Hi Sonny… that’s a great story, thanks so much for that! I never knew the name of the guard, and now I won’t be tricked by the joke! Love all the posts on Solo in your blog… one of my favourite cities! Off to read more. =)
