This marionette of Knight was created by carver Bohumil Bek from Kutna Hora in 1920 and was part of collection of Rudolf Kaiser.
In the case of the sale of this puppet, we dedicate half of the amount collected to the development of PUP - Puppet University Prague
The artistic carver, sculptor and restorer Bohumil Bek was the only one in the family who did not become a teacher, but an artist. In 1909, Bohumil moved to Kutná Hora, where he founded his workshop and produced altars and statues for churches, furniture, gift items and, last but not least, very charming and beautiful puppets. Its wooden mangers and statues can still be seen in several churches. This puppet is made of quality original materials.
Thank you for all your advice and help! Guys at Czech Marionettes are really masters of what they do. I have visited them in their studio and got my Skeleton there. Will buy more professional stuff there.
I was surprised by how easy and fun it is to operate. The controls and strings are straightforward, making it easy to create various dance movements. For its size, the puppet is very compact and can be comfortably carried in a small backpack. If you're looking for a simple yet entertaining and nice marionette, this marionette is a fantastic choice.
