Prompt: For this project we had to create some sort of body extension using mechanical connectors.

I created a puppet inspired by a store in Italy my family and I went to all the time called Bartolucci. I want to make something that resembled their style and wooden lamentation technique while also incorporating some of my own style, hence the skeleton body. I stacked multiple layers of chipboard together and held them in place with wire that I then used to attach all the individual body parts together.
