This marionette has many beautiful details. The hat of this farmer is made of real fur, his coat is made of corduroy with large black buttons and his shirt is embroidered in a typical old Czech pattern. This piece of history is truly unique and we are excited to have it in our collection.
He came from a carving family, his carvings are mostly nativity scenes; he created both individual figures and entire sets with scenery. He is also the author of many marionettes and complete marionette theaters. His marionettes are characterized by a simple but distinctive carving, wide faces and large eyes. The faces of the girl's marionettes resemble tender porcelain dolls. The heads of women's marionettes are carved without hair so that hairpins can be used and replaced. His marionettes were professionally mastered both in terms of expression and technology.
