Recently, several shadow puppetry artists and engineers have developed optical methods to stereoscopically display shadow images in three dimensions. In this paper we report the application of digital image synthesis to mimic the stereoscopic shadow images, particularly the images relevant to the UNESCO-listed art of Wayang Kulit from Indonesia. The digital images are synthesised by computing the coloured shadow images that the puppets would cast on the screen, while the animation is done by computing the motion of the images under puppet translation and rotation. The resulting digital images can be used in virtual shadow puppetry or in computer animated games involving 3D Wayang Kulit scene..
