Chinese Shadow Puppets

    Newer Older

    I purchased this couple in the Liulichang shopping district in Beijing. Chinese theater shadow puppets are said to be the earliest of their kind in the world, an art form that flourishes to this day. The puppets are made of translucent animal hide (usually donkey) and dyes.
