Water sprite marionette – wood carved

Three marionettes carved in Prague at the puppet workshop.

1. Vodnik – a Czech water sprite traditional marionette. Water sprites lure children and girls into freshwater – rivers, streams, marshes. They often smoke pipes and may come into the local pub, but are given away by dripping.

2. Girl marionette, design based on my daughter as a young girl. Her clothes can be changed so she can act as a Cinderella character. She has acted in the Selkie Wife.

 

3. Dragon marionette. The design means that Drac can fly.
