An unusual antique Dancer marionette

This is how people in the first half of the 20th century imagined how exotic dancers looked. This marionette is made of linden wood, has beautiful wooden gold shoes, metal earrings and a beautiful pink costume. It will fit into the collection of a marionette enthusiast or connoisseur.

Jan Benda

Jan Benda (1897-1967) was a Czech graphic artist, draftsman and later a puppeteer. After being wounded on the Italian front, he was employed at the Archaeological Institute in Prague. He then began working with various Czech puppeteers to design and process marionettes, which he also modeled. Some of his marionette designs were processed by the company of the Czech carver Josef Kalous.
