Shadow Puppet Area

According to legend, shadow puppetry began when Emperor Wu of the Han Dynasty was grieving over the loss of his favorite concubine, Consort Li, and a vagabond sorcerer cut out her silhouette to comfort the emperor. Traditionally, shadow puppets have been sculpted from the hides of cows, goats or donkeys. This area exhibits the process of making a puppet from cowhide, as well as many precious shadow puppets from China and Indonesia. Want to play with some yourself? The stage is set!
