Puppets

Today in the alley of the Silesia City Centre I spotted a small exhibition of puppets that took part in many performances for children. More photos: have a look here.

Actually, I went back to check the name of the artist who created the puppets but found none, only the info that these are puppets from Ateneum - the Silesian Teatre of Puppets and Actors.

aren't these the same style of puppets used in the Kieslowski movie The Double of Veronica? or is this unique to Poland? very nice to see these here.

Thanx for your comments :) The puppets were designed and made by some artist whose name unfortunately I forgot to jot down when I was taking the photos, but next time I'm there I'll try write down the name. They are characters from fairy tales presented on stage. In Katowice there is Ateneum (http://www.ateneum.art.pl/) - a theatre of actors and puppets where performances for young audience are presented.
