Collection Prestige 75 cm
Cousin of Orlando, riding a hippogriff, Astolfo goes to the moon to recover Orlando's sense from the hands of St. John. His emblem is the lily of France on the shield.
Each puppet has been designed as a unique piece of design, which can be either hung or placed on an exhibition base. All our puppets are sold without a display base. In case you would like to buy one, just add it to your cart!
This Sicilian puppet has been hand-made by Francesco Salamanca according to the traditional building technique: the armour is made of embossed brass, the structure is made of wood and the clothes are hand-sewn.
Sicilian puppets have been protagonists of the Opera dei Pupi, a typical Sicilian theatre recognised by UNESCO as “Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity”.
The images of our Sicilian puppets may not be perfectly representative, but may differ in color, size, accessories present in the images.
Our packaging have been designed as a journey of senses that allows you to touch a piece of Sicily with your own hands: the scent of orange blossom flowers, the warmth of the sun on the skin and the lunar landscapes of Etna. These elements give life to what you will find inside our elegant packaging, but we leave you the surprise of discovering their content by opening it on your own!
