Orang Bunian is a race of legendary being appearing in Malay folklore and Indonesian folklore. It shares characteristics of Elves from Europe. In some legends they are said to be invisible to all humans except those with spiritual sight. The bunian usually inhabit the deep forests or high mountains, far from human contact, but they are also known to live near human communities. Common misconception is that they are Orang Pendek-like creature, but in fact, they are told to have civilization on their own.
