Antonio Vitali Hand Puppets In Paris

It wasn't until DT reader and Antonio Vitali puppetmaster Aaron sent along a link to these photos of Vitali's handpuppets at the Louvre's Musee les Arts décoratifs that I realized they're mimes. Moody, manic, silent, creepy, Frenchy mimes.

Oh no, he's trapped, mint in box, can't get out.

But seriously, they're in tres tres bon etat. The red one even has the Vitali tag around his neck.
