Antique marionette - Water spirit holding a pipe

This beautiful marionette has a lot of details that you can't miss. One of them is a beautiful, hand-carved pipe that he holds in a clenched fist. Another thing you need to pay attention to is his legs with webs for swimming and little red claws. His hair and all the details of his face are also hand-carved and painted. His clothes have a lot of studs, buttons and pieces of fringe, and his leather belt with a decorative fastening is also not to be overlooked. His hat has a decorative blue rhinestone in the middle. All these fabrics are original, the marionette is carved from linden wood. In short, a unique work of art.

Karel Krob

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 marionettes. He continued the tradition of Czech puppeteers, because he carved marionettes as he remembered them from the marionette shows of his childhood. Initially, he made marionettes 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 museum and private collections and puppet ensembles.
