Wooden PuppetIt should be enough that this talented group of artists at Czech Marionettes Workshop produces these beautiful works of art, but they also offer a customized puppet to resemble the person of your choice.  A gift for someone you know personally or a celebrity you may admire – they have a great example of an Obama look alike.  The way they capture the resemblance on some is impressive. Personally, I like these more traditional puppets that have the older look.  This example here is a librarian with a body filled with books.

The prices on the puppets vary from around $50.00 to almost $1000.00.  They don’t seem to be overpriced at all.  I  was hoping to get more information about the process that is involved in creating a marionette of this quality but the site is not very informative.  I wonder if this may be a language issue.  Maybe someday they will expand their site.
