Description The story about Putri Campa (or Campa princess/girl) is related to the story of the Kingdom of Majapahit. She is portrayed as a beautiful light skinned women with red lips who was sent to Majapahit by Raja Campa Indravarman VI around 1428 at the age of 17 years. Her name was Darawati and on 1430 was married by the Majapahit King Prabu Brawijaya Pamungkas.  Since then migrants from the Muslim Kingdom  of Campa (in today Cambodia and Central Vietnam) travelled to Majapahit and some remained there. Glass paintings portray Putri Campa in many different postures and with dresses and settings reflecting much more modern times, but they all symbolize cross-cultural relations with Indochina
