Antique Astronomer marionette with a star hat

This marionette has many elaborate details that you must not miss. In addition to feathers, his cap is adorned with metal stars and ornaments. His eyes have a sparkle and his face comes to life thanks to precisely cut wrinkles and beard. Also notice his velvet coat, lace details on his shirt and beautiful plaid vest with buttons. It's a really unique piece of craft.

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.
