Offering a wonderful, hand carved and painted, vintage Burmese marionette – puppet.
This Myanmar, traditional doll, measures 14" from top of wooden hat to bottom of wooden feet.
He is a fabulously dressed ogre or demon, and I have named him The Ogre in the Green Shirt. His outfit is so heavily embroidered, studded with sequins and glass jewels, that you can barely see it.
His wood fingers and toes have red designs painted on them.
His neck is carved with a separate disc to make it more movable, as are his legs which have two sections.
A marvelous piece of ethnic workmanship. All strings are still attached.
Small flecks off the paint here and there, but he is clean, no odors and no major damage.
I have two Burmese marionettes listed separately.
