- UNESCO’s recognition of the kris as a world intangible heritage does not stop the marginalization and even harassment against it. Placing the dagger as an object of academic research would be an award for him. The message of ethics as a valuable human idea must be contained in a keris. The message will be traced through this research that aims to find what ethical messages contained in various forms of dragon keris. Some of the dragon kerises as observation units are described and analyzed semiotically to find context. The research found that in the dragon dagger there are: a) The dragon figure in the Keris Naga contains ethical discourse that originates from beliefs based on certain religions and that comes from Javanese knowledge systems; b) Intellectual practices took place in the form of simulacra in which the dragon in the Keris Naga was interpreted as the wisdom of living wisdom. Intellectual practice in the form of conversion from explicit knowledge to tacit knowledge is driven by the practice of commodification of the dragon dagger as an economic and symbolic value object.
