Lanceng Madura: The Java Sea Golekan
Project of The Scholarshipwrights

The last remaining sail-powered golekan, launched in 2005, is the Lanseng Madura, an ambassador for Indonesian craftsmanship. Like many traditional small craft designs around the world that were formed out of the hands and minds of communities on the edge of survival, the story of the Lanseng Madura sustains the taproot of indigenous culture.
