Nilar the,sapphire, is a Burmese Yok-Thei Puppet. Please refer to the information on the previous page about the history & traditions of this form of puppetry.

She is carved in teak wood with an authentic vintage costume rich in sequin detail, ample couched metallic thread, large thick red, silver, green foil-backed glass roundels & gold leaf on the face & body. The garment is a 9cy court costume. She is fully functional. However, due to her size and weight, most difficult to manipulate. We have her standing in a stand that allows you to place her in your home as you wish. Of course, you could choose to hang her as you would a smaller puppet. In either case, she is remarkable and unique.

The Burmese are Master Puppeters creating awesome shows for the wonderment of all.  Their costumes are magnificent, often showing the intricate sequin work for which the Burmese are so well known.
