Giraffe-olaPosted by Suzanne, on September 5th, 2009

This absolutely gorgeous GIANT giraffe puppet is manned by 2 puppeteers on stilts…from a South African puppet theater – check out their cool site:

If you look carefully you will see the legs of the puppeteers in the legs of the giraffe.

The key to creating animal puppets is in the relationship of the head to the body proportion…get that right and the animal will move with the right true rhythm of that animal – as in this fantastic giraffe. Imagine an outdoor puppet show with this puppet running through the grasslands!
