Close Up of Two Puppets from the Puppet Show

These are two of the puppets from the puppet show at the birthday party. Looking closely you will see that the puppet maker kept the two dimples in the face of the female puppet.

Puppet Show Ordered for a Birthday

Puppet Show Ordered for a Birthday

While in Zhushan we came across this traditional puppet show. It is transported in a small truck and the sides are all folded into the truck bed. The puppet characters represent the eight gods that bring treasure and fortune. Earlier in the day I saw these same gods painted on the back of a tour bus. They were all in a boat sailing off for treasure. The implication was that if you joined this tour bus you too would find treasure. After leaving the puppet show we stopped at our guest’s home and outside they were putting up a tent for another birthday party. The banner stretched across the entrance, yes you guessed it, there were the same eight gods of treasure.
