Antique witch marionette

This marionette was made out of historical materials of high quality. Her whole body is carved from wood, but she is different from other marionettes - she has hair made of wood and at the same time she has artificial hair added to it. Note also the eyes in which the beads were inserted, which is also unique. Another peculiarity of this marionette is the humorously "torn" shoes. In short, an original piece of history.

František Šimek

František Šimek (1881-1949) learned the carving craft from his father. He created heads and whole marionettes either alone or with other Czech puppeteers. He also renovated marionettes for other puppeteers. The costumes were made by his wife. In addition to marionettes, he also made daily necessities and furniture and restored wooden sculptures in churches.

Wow this is the real cowboy. The cowboy without a horse is what I call him. He is the star of the show. My friends love him. I am from New Mexico. I know cowboys. This marionette is the best for me

This puppet has surpassed my expectations. This Dracula is going to have his own show. My friends fall over laughing and enjoy the shows that I do for them.
