NEW: Dancing man and Ballerina by Victoria Ladefoged

New in store, Dancing man and Ballerina by Danish artist Victoria Ladefoged. Silhouette puppets that can move their bodies and dance. The figures are inspired by Turkish shadow plays where puppets with jointed bodies, controlled with sticks, form silhouettes. The puppets resemble jumping jacks, but one has to manually move the puppet’s arms and legs to make the body dance. The puppets come in black and in natural colour and are made of discarded crates from Aarstiderne – a Danish company that delivers organic produce door-to-door.
