Subject: [Puptcrit] Handspring Puppet Company:  Wood Puppet Masterpieces!


A contact of mine recently visited an exhibition in New York of Africa's Handspring Puppet company.
She gave me the adress to their website. 
The pictures are in black and white, but oh so beautiful.
The wooden puppets are masterpieces!

I love the homnesty of their shape and the revelation of the textures!
Chisel marks as expression of personality!
I wish I could see them up close!
Truly mind boggling!
