Historical Background

Kirata

In Hindu belief, Kirata is one of the forms the god Shiva can take. Kirata is a great hunter (in fact, Kirata means "hunter" or "mountaineer"). In this form, Shiva appears with black skin wearing a tiger skin, laurels of flowers on his head, and wielding a bow & arrow. Shiva as Kirata was to test Prince Arjuna to determine if he was worthy of receiving a powerful weapon, the Pasupatastra. Kirata is also the name of an ethnic group that resided in India (specifically the Lower Himalayas) before the Aryan populations arrived.

Kirata was once called Macan Gadungan for a short while before its name was changed. Macan Gadungan should not be confused with Macan Gadangan, the name of a Coeurl in a BCNM.

Macan Gadungan

In Indonesian, macan means "tiger" or "leopard" and gadungan means "fake" or "imitation". So, its name means "fake tiger" or "imitation tiger".
