Built to last

There's been some question recently about the use of paper mache for puppets. When proper materials and technique are used, I can assure you, durability is secure and this vent figure is but one example.
You may have read some of the details on how I constructed this ventriloquist figure on my photo album page (Click here) . He began as a large stuffed child's toy, but I rebuilt him with hollow body, head on head post, brass control levers (2) to operate his lower beak (open and close) and his eyes (wiggle up & down).

His head turns, of course, and his arms raise by pulling a cord inside the body.
