Thai puppetry in Ancient Siam

Thai puppetry in Ancient Siam
The art of puppet making - or hadtasin - requires great attention to detail. Marionettes consist of a frame covered with papier-mâché. Most of the frame is made of wood. Parts that must be able to move independently - like the head, neck, and hands - are made of aluminum and wire, which are more malleable. The hand joints require the most attention, since they must be capable of intricate khon movements. Puppet makers must also attach the sticks the puppeteers will use to make the puppets move.
