Bruno Leone figure.

Just thought folks might be interested in seeing Bruno Leone's Pulcinello figure. It is made, I believe, out of a piece of tree.

WHAT!? I've been lied to! I was always told, "Take care of those puppets, they don't grow on trees!"

Speaking about Bruno Leone, here you a rare video of him carving a wooden head.

It looks very rare, Alessandro (I can't even see it :wink: :D )

That kind of fits with what I meant about the "piece of tree", in that he told me he wasn't spending as much time carving figures now. He was finding bits of branches etc which had interesting features (like a small branch stub for a nose) and using those features.

He suggested the kids in the audience did this too.

But Percy never had that spittle-catcher hanging in front of his face - unfortunately.

Is it true that at the May Fayre there will be someone playing the Tuba while swazzling?

It's a beauty, isn't it? Topless (as you'll have guessed), with slits and openings all over the place for both him and the puppets to pop in and out of. He also has bits and pieces, musical instruments etc hanging off it.

He performed part of the show in Commedia dell Arte style, with mask and costume.
