Old wooden professional Burmese marionette from a Mandalay theatre. I've brought the marionette myself from Burma at the time. Ingenious little mechanism for the movements of the marionette. Entirely handmade. Theatre shows sometimes lasted for entire nights. The puppeteers created drama plays for everyone. This puppet features wonderful embroidered clothing fully set with antique beads and glitters.
She has a white painted face and an operable mouth. This unique puppet is a wonderful acquisition for collectors and enthusiasts.
