String Puppet Area
update:2009/04/30

By the Song Dynasty, both marionettes and rod puppets had become widespread throughout China. Marionettes (string puppets) became a common fixture of traditional Taiwanese culture, and were once an irreplaceable part of any major celebration. The child puppets, “Cherry Blossom Ladies” and battling puppets featured in this exhibition area are all major characters found in Taiwanese marionette plays. Is manipulating a string puppet easy or difficult? Try it for yourself, and you’ll find out!
