Burmese Puppets

Here is something to get you in the mood for the Burmese puppets that will grace our museum later this week. I found a wonderful video on the creation of these amazing puppets on YouTube by director Khi Phu Shin.
At the museum, there will be demonstrations by the Mandalay Marionette Theater Thursday night at our MATCHA event and also during AsiaAlive October 27th through the 31st. Hope to see you there.

    Having just returned from BalĂ­ thursday, the puppet film and links were a great extension of my trip. Thank you, Asian Art Museum.

    I have two Burmese puppets for sale. They are not new, but of older vintage, antique colors, not a large as ones in video. One is shorter, stout, about 13 inches; the other is of slender build, about 23 inches tall. Anyone interested, I am offering them for $50 each.
