Aligned beside the stage for their "cue," are leather puppets used for shadow plays. Here, they have a striking resemblance to a Picasso painting.

    Fairy tales indeed.. having studied abit of the Silat/Bersilat, etc, have seen these used in tales of the heroes of the mythology of these peoples... wonderful capture of the "aliveness" of the puppets... Great collection and great detail in the pic. A+ composition. Again--my vote.
