No one else can carve such a beautiful wooden cubist marionette. Only excellent puppeteer Antony Muller knows the wood and the technique of hand carving like this. And if you add his knowledge in anatomy you get this masterpiece.

Look at the hands! You have to cut the linden wood in the middle of winter and dry it slowly for a couple of years to get the massive block of wood stable enough to be able to carve such tiny fingers. Apart from this, you have to know the grain structure and of course, be able to transform it into an aesthetically beautiful form. That’s why we call it a masterpiece...
This Vampire is known in some parts of the world as the Baron of Prague. Barnabas January has power over other vampires and humans as well. Luckily, our marionette gave up scaring people hundreds of years ago and he’ll be happy to find some cozy spot in your home to relax.
Vampire Barnabas rightfully belongs to The best of Czech Marionettes.
Besides his character, there are many details on this marionette that deserve your attention. The whole creation is hand carved from wood and hand-painted with great attention to detail. As you can see the wood is very sharp-edged. This style of carving gives this puppet an almost cubist appearance. And it increases the artistic value of the marionette.

Thank you for all your advice and help! Guys at Czech Marionettes are really masters of what they do. I have visited them in their studio and got my Skeleton there. Will buy more professional stuff there.
I was surprised by how easy and fun it is to operate. The controls and strings are straightforward, making it easy to create various dance movements. For its size, the puppet is very compact and can be comfortably carried in a small backpack.
