Comic Role – Rod Puppetry

This comic role is the most characteristic inner rod puppet in Shaanxi rod puppetry, i.e., placing the hand rod inside the garment. At about 40 cm tall, it is a typical representative of “petite” rod puppets. With its exaggerated and strange appearance, and movable eyes and mouth, the puppet vividly conveys a sense of humor in addition to a hint of adorability brought by the brightly colored garment.
