This will be one of the puppets for the travelling monk, the waki in my Nue puppet show. I scanned him before cutting him out and puppetizing him. He is more or less the point-of-view character, and I plan to make a couple versions of him for the various scenes. The cool thing about this kind of toy theater is that it creates the possibility of a sort of theater-cinema hybrid–I can make a bust-length puppet for “closeups” and a little teeny puppet for “long shots”. The limitations are obvious–the characters’ movement is very very limited. But I’m enjoying thinking about how to work in this medium.
