Burmese Prince Puppet

Burmese Prince Puppet

TH607

£36

 

These fascinating puppets have been meticulously crafted in Myanmar and are fine examples of "Yoke thé", the Burmese for marionette puppetry. Yoke thé is thought to date back as far as 1780 and the art form follows a very similar format to this day. The same traditional 27 characters are used within a Burmese marionette troupe, of which this highly decorated prince is just one. The performance is generally taken in the form of a Burmese opera and each puppet is operated by just one highly skilled puppeteer. 

Origin: Thailand
