Bunraku puppets

Osaka, Japan

In the beginning of a drama acted out by these large-scale puppets, the puppet masters are clothed and hooded in black, so their presence won't distract views. By the second act, the puppets are so real and life-like that the puppeteers take off their hoods, and the audience no longers "sees" them.
