Item details

This paper mache puppet head has an incredible look to him. The colors, the shape, those creepy eyes and long white row of teeth. I have no way to date him properly, other than the person I bought him from saying he's "early," but with aesthetics like that, the year hardly matters. He has a Punch and Judy vibe, though a bit more artful. I could spend hours looking at him and dreaming up his story. I'd love to see someone construct a body for him and give him new life.

I've included a picture of the inside of his head, which appears to have been rigged up to something somehow. It almost looks like the rivets in his brows were supposed to move and show some expression, but the rivets and the mechanisms are pretty well set, so I'm not sure what's going on in the inside of his head.

He would look amazing in a curio display, especially one dedicated to theatre. He measures about 6.5" tall.
