Wooden Puppets


The origin of the folk art of puppetry is a widely debated issue. Each country has a rich stock of stories and traditions tracing the origins of puppetry. One view is that the art of the marionette or string puppetry originated in India; another view holds that the art actually originated in Europe through the travelling Italian showmen. Puppetry traditions in Sri Lanka are believed to be Indian in origin.
