Abstract

Pedati Gede Pekalangan Cirebon will be the main object of this research. Although there are sources say that Pedati Gede logically cannot run, and many also believe that Pedati Gede is a magical vehicle that can walk by not touching the ground (flying), but this research is not to prove the truth of the story. Finding the symbolic meaning of Pedati Gede is the main focus. This research is a qualitative research with an ethnographic approach through oral history, and a semiotic approach through visual narrative. Data collection obtained through interviews, observation, and literature study. The results of this study indicate that Pedati Gede Pekalangan is a symbol of the closeness of the Cirebon muslim community to the God. Pedati Gede is a symbol of a vehicle (facility) to achieve a goal, namely Allah SWT.
