Chinese Shadow Puppet

Chinese shadow puppets originated during the Han dynasty. Chinese shadow puppetry uses articulated figures in front of a lit backdrop to create the impression of moving images. Shadow puppetry can be performed either in front of or behind the illuminated back drop. Chinese shadow puppetry is often accompanied with music to help tell a picturesque story.

Chinese shadow puppets make a great children's gift. The puppetry sets helps your child's imagination and creativity grow.
