Subject: [Puptcrit] Marionette body scale (by heads)


There is no set scale for marionette bodiy height in relation the head size.  I've seen variations from 3 heads high to seven or more. Puppets are not restricted by what passes for naturalism. Exaggeration is part of a puppet builder's vocabulary.



I think that is just one of many reasons that people in puppetry are more open to diversity. The Universe is full of diversity. So is the puppet universe.

1936! Wow!

I second the thanks and praise.

I was taught that the scale for a human body representation was 7  
heads, not 6.
Anyone else?
