Description

Shadow puppet clown head from “Journey to the West”. Flat head made from semi-translucent cut, punched and painted hide. The face is cutout or hollow, and outlined in black. The eyebrows are arched and extend the width of the face, and mouth smirks. They wear a thin yellow mask(?) over the eyes, and a red head scarf with cut out flowers, green outline and borders, and two long red with small green, black and yellow horizontal bands. A long neck acts as a tab to insert into the collar of a body.

Narrative

The facial features are all typical of a clown archetype. The headdress is also awkward and fitting for a clown. The head is for a 2 foot puppet.
