Antik witch marionette holding a stick

This beautiful marionette seems to have stepped out of a fairy tale. Her body is decorated with original antique fabrics that only add to her mystique. Note the details in the form of wrinkles that are evident on her face and neck. Even her arms and feet are thought through to the last detail. All of this creates a completely original marionette from a bygone era.

František Šimek

František Šimek (1881-1949) learned the carving craft from his father. He created heads and whole marionettes either alone or with other Czech puppeteers. He also renovated marionettes for other puppeteers. The costumes were made by his wife. In addition to marionettes, he also made daily necessities and furniture and restored wooden sculptures in churches.
