Pilgrimage Parades ─Deity Puppet Team

This is a kind of human puppet about twice the height of an average person. The puppeteer will need to hide under the clothes of the deity puppet to carry and manipulate it to walk or dance. The puppeteer will also need to swing the puppet’s hands at the same time to bring the audience a kind of strange and solemn feeling. Instead of a single deity puppet, it is a deity puppet team that usually appears in the parade.
