Halloween Marionettes

 My friend Lisa used to visit family in Czech Republic and one time they brought home beautiful folk art illustrations by Josef Lada, who was popular in 1920s. These hideously frightening antique marionettes are from Czech Marionettes and a couple of these beauties are inspired by figures in Josef Lada's illustrations like the old, green waterman!
