Wizard marionette with a kind expression

This antique marionette is a truly unique piece. This mage stands out in an orange robe made of shiny fabric, his cap is made of real fur and velvet, and his expression is infinitely optimistic. His hair and beard are a real rarity, as they have been preserved in excellent condition, which usually does not happen with non-wood hair. Get it in your collection and it will brighten up even the grayest day.

Karel Krob

Karel Krob (1904 - 1974) originally trained as a shoemaker, but from a young age he was fascinated by the puppetry world. That is why he also devoted all his free time to carving and making marionettes. He continued the tradition of Czech puppeteers, because he carved marionettes as he remembered them from the marionette shows of his childhood. Initially, he made marionettes only for the pleasure of his children, acquaintances and friends. Later, he carved marionettes for puppet ensembles, including the Spejbl and Hurvínek Theater. Today, his works are represented in a number of museum and private collections and puppet ensembles.
