A very well made vintage Burmese marionette / puppet wearing traditional costume that has been made with extraordinary detail. I believe the character is Thu Nge Daw, the altar boy, a jolly figure who dances all of the time :) Great addition to any collection of Asian art or else as an interesting and unique item of creepy décor. In South East Asia puppets that have previously been played are thought to be haunted and treated with a great deal of respect. There is no damage or losses that I can see. 38cm without strings.
