This marionette is made of quality materials dating from the 20th century. The magician's piercing blue eyes, pink cloak and long white beard make him absolutely unique. Notice also the purple clothing with gold embroidered details. We are excited to introduce you to this magician as an original historical piece.
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.
