Well Simon,  I have to agree.  But imitation is the first step.  It
makes me happy that someone would go to the trouble of making a giant
puppet go for a  walk across a country.  Isn't it the same with all
imitation, whether it is derivative of Muppets, Bread and Puppet, Bil
Baird, Julie Taymor or anything.  I recall early on, wanting to copy
my mentor so badly that I almost moved across the country so I could
shamelessly do it.  What a relief when one finally gets there own muse
and creates original work.  Sometimes that begins with imitation.
http://www.ciag.org/opencms/en/seccions/index.html   Here is a website
of giant puppets.  It is certainly not something that Royal de Luxe
can say they invented, though I have to say they are the best at it
from what I have seen.  Henson once said, "its all been done before".
