Table of Contents

This book narrates the development of the marionette both as a work of art and as a figure for playing with and describes how it moves. A puppet is suspended on strings. Looked at physically, this makes it a pendulum and therefore it can be explained by the laws governing the movements of a pendulum. The continual toing and froing about its point of rest is the special feature of a pendulum. At the upper-most point of its swing there is a momentary pause, a brief rest. It reaches its highest momentum and restlessness midway between the poles.

This is an in-depth study on Marionettes, including detailed notes on their creation and on the art itself. Learn how to effect a life-like creation that is realistic to the spectator; engage your audience in a hypnotic performance.
