Carving Puppets

National Museum - New Delhi

National Museum - New Delhi

In carving new puppets, the Santali craftsman's inspiration was the quality of carving their previous generations had achieved. The puppets reflect the current hairstyles sported by women when they dance: hair gathered at the back and affixed with three pins. There are little grooves on each puppet head for paper flowers. © Museum Rietberg, Zurich
