A pair of carved wooden Burmese fertility puppets

A wonderfully characterful pair of old ‘Burmese’ marionette puppets, complete with naughty bits! We are told that these are fertility puppets.

The puppets have numerous strings (not all attached though the majority are) which control everything from the individual eye movements to the more intimate parts!

A great pair which come complete with display stand.



All approximate

Height 60cm each, on stand 62cm

Stand 62cm x 45cm x 16cm



Condition: Where there are specific points to note we will detail these as far as possible but please be aware that all our items have wear commensurate with age and are as seen in the photographs. If you require any specific information please do not hesitate to get in contact. As seen in the images, but not limited to: wear and marks. Not all strings attached. The stand has a tendency to topple so needs weighting at the base.
