Chapter Summary

This chapter contains a list of tables depicting cap-figures in Majapahit art in chronological order. It presents a representative selection of exemplary temples and sculptures. The chapter of the book describes and discusses various case studies, consisting of selected depictions of cap-figures. It investigates each case following the author's methodology. Thus, first the iconography and meaning of the cap-figures are discussed in the context of the narrative sequences. This is followed by an analysis of the symbolic meaning of the cap-figures in the context of the narrative depictions, and of the temple with its specific layout and function. After the analysis of these case studies, the author draws conclusions about the symbolic meaning and the function of the cap-figures in the broader context of Majapahit religion. This enables the author to answer her question: Why was the cap-figure depicted frequently and exclusively in the Majapahit temples?

Keywords: cap-figures; Majapahit art; narrative depictions
