Antique Kathputli Puppet Handcrafted from Rajasthan India

This colorful antique Rajasthani Kathputli puppet is a wonderful conversation piece we found on a recent trip to Jodhpur, India. Lovingly hand carved and painted by artisans this pretty bridal puppet is a part of a long tradition of Indian folk history and ancient public storytelling. She is wearing a colorful bridal sari and jewelry. Her clothes and jewelry are also handmade.


Due to her 60+ year age this puppet has sustained some wear and tear. She is attached to a wood base for display (it no longer has puppet strings). The clothes are hand sewn from saris and the faces are painted and carved from wood.
