Character of the Gambuh, Raja Putri is the archetype of the aristocratic beauty, refined and intelligent. She is Dalem
feminine version. This mask can either be of a queen, or of a dignitary spouse, depending on the context of the play, and can even from time to time replace Sita
in the Wayang Wong. Her lowered eyes assert her submission to masculine characters.
