A hand-carved wooden puppet head of a young woman with human hair was made by folk artists in the 19th century.

A single block of wood has been carved out by hand to form a female puppet head. You can see carved marks on the base. The head is covered in human hair and is attached by metal staples to the head top. The painting is finely done. There is a hole at the base to attach to the puppet’s body.
