Karel Krob (1904 - 1974) originally trained as a shoemaker, but from a young age, he was fascinated by the puppetry world. That is why he also devoted all his free time to carving and making puppets. He continued the tradition of Czech puppeteers because he carved puppets as he remembered them from puppet shows of his childhood. Initially, he made puppets only for the pleasure of his children, acquaintances, and friends. Later, he carved marionettes for puppet ensembles, including the Spejbl and Hurvínek Theater. Today, his works are represented in a number of museums and private collections and marionette ensembles.
