And now for something completely different — To make up for the irregularity of my posting lately, I’m going to post a different marionette maker every day this week (can you tell I’ve just figured out how to schedule my posts?).
Tradition seems like a good place to start, so check out Czech Marionettes, a company that represents several of Prague’s traditional puppet makers. Their handmade puppets are beautiful and feature professional-style controls. Some of them have amazing articulation — the wizard in the black robes above has poseable eyes.
