A very old antique handcarved-handpainted-wood marionette-puppet from S.E.
Asia. Likely Burmese -- pre-WWII -- from textiles, style of clothes and
fabric-condition -- which is faded & one leg of the pants has a rip. The
marionette itself is a work of art -- most expressive -- and because each part
from head and mouth to hands to knees to fingers -- is articulated -- it seems
see pics) the expression changes with changes in position. The hair is carved,
the face is beautiful and the feet knock me out with hand-carved painted
traditional shoes. A very "alive" -- somewhat worn (textiles) -- piece for a
collector or to use as a folk-art or wall-hanging. Height is 27" Width is `12".
