Rajasthani Puppets (Pair) x 3 pairs
These colourful handmade and hand painted string puppets are one of the finest examples of the most ancient and popular form of folk entertainment. Indian traditional home décor string puppets or kathputli of Rajasthan's are one of the most vibrant aspects of Indian culture.
These folk puppets of Rajasthan are known as kathputli (Kath meaning wood and Putli meaning doll) and are made in Jaipur. The art of puppeteering has a long tradition in Rajasthan, but the puppets themselves are fairly simple creations. Mostly, they consist of painted wooden heads made from recycled wood draped with dresses made from old saree fabrics and sequined for charm. The puppets are generally in 1.5 to 2 feet in height although they can produced in over 4ft tall puppets. The hands are made simply by using recycled sarees or cotton into the sleeve of the dress and filling it out. The most quaint aspect of these puppets is the way their expressions are painted, large expressive eyes with arched eyebrows, and a curling moustache for men, or a nose ring for the women. The faces are usually painted yellow, white or any light colour. The costumes are regional and traditional while the themes that are performed revolve around Rajasthani historical tales or local legends. These beautiful string puppets are sure to add new dimension to your wall decor, home entertainment and will make an excellent gift for children.
