Wooden Puppets with Animal Heads

Information on Sculptures with Animal Heads

The seven sculptures with animal Heads, presented below, come from the Terai region, most probably from the Rajbanshi tribe in the eastern south of the Terai. The seven objects were acquired as a group and, therefore, seem to form an ensemble used by tribal “troubadours” traveling from village to village, playing instruments, telling stories etc.
