The Squeaking Tribe

Faery Marionette Puppet

Description

Faeries – Fairies (or Faeries) have perhaps as long and varied a history with world culture and story as Dragons have, appearing in various fabulous forms in folklore and fantasies from every corner of the globe for as far as their own unending memories might stretch. Beautiful tricksters, silent nature spirits, winged guides dressed in gossamer and shadow, or a cloud of colourful motes at the corner of your eye, there is no denying that the otherworldly Fairy is a natural embodiment of our beautiful Earth and the female force which nurtures and protects it and an especially important reminder today of all the wonder and magic we take for granted and the suffering such ignorance is effecting upon the planet. Clap your hands and believe! Marionette in doll form is approximately 25cm in height or 60cm when strung. Squeaky Classics: Original designs for all ages from our early roots til now! The first puppet I ever made in our standard 6-string design was a little Mummy marionette, a simple bandaged affair which utilised the weight of the clay pieces and the meagre costuming to create a proper functioning prototype which remains the core design behind most of our work to date. By working with some basic archetypes and alternating through gender, age and cultural influences, I developed a classic range of differing characters which are a continuing part of the Squeaking Tribe canon today. As familiar as these characters are to me now, I keep the joy alive by incorporating more details and personal quirks than I did in the past, so each one still retains its own unique identity. For the budget-minded, these are a good starting point to gauge your interest without betting the farm. A perfect launch-pad for the young ones, too!
