While the Yunnan aesthetic is relatively young, originating around 400-600 years ago, it is one of the most striking in the country.  The rough, thick hide – usually water buffalo or cow – dictated larger puppets with coarser cuts.  Out from behind the light, they look primitive in comparison with their Northern Central cousins.  But, when lit from behind these puppets are some of the most arresting I’ve seen yet – bold, brash and impossible to take your eyes off of.
