Choreography and music bring the sculpted wood of this marionette to life. Influenced by the Czech marionette theatre as well as western marionette construction, this puppet moves in vibrantly animated ways. The body is carved from bass wood using various sizes of chisels. It stands a little less than 2 feet tall, collaborating well with live actors and destined for the avant-garde puppet theatre.
