More string puppets

More string puppets waiting to go onto the 7th Lunar Month performance.

These puppets are half life-size (reaching to your waist). In the days when they are more popular, such size would cater to the visibility of a larger audience. Today, only a scattering of people watch the performance. Who knows if it’ll truly be one day, a performance for the dead, only the dead.
