The unique narrative monograph deals with the artistic phenomenon of Czech marionettes, namely the theater of nomadic puppeteers, the family federal puppet theater and creators-artists. It presents marionettes as artifacts with an emphasis on their artistic quality. The book is richly equipped with unique specifically taken photographs by Václav Jirásek, combining informational attention with an artistic view. The book captures the development of Czech puppetry from the oldest and rarest marionette puppets by Mikoláš Sychrovský, through marionettes from the estate of Jan Kopecký and other well-known creators such as Vojtěch Sucharda, Mikoláš Aleš, Jiří Trnka, Karel Svolinský, Ladislav Sutnar and many others. Current authors are represented by, for example, František Skála, Petr Nikl, Petr Kalfus, or Jan Švankmajer.
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. If you're looking for a simple yet entertaining and nice marionette, this marionette is a fantastic choice.
If you enjoy Marionettes this is the site for you - your time and effort will be used wisely if you love creative puppets I recommend this site owner unconditionally and enthusiastically!
