Guy Fawkes Puppets from Mexico

Guy Fawkes Puppets from Mexico

This lovely photograph was taken at an art fair in Mexico for a local fireworks festival. This is beautiful local craftsmanship and the puppets represent the menfolk of the village in the traditional act of dancing around with fireworks on their heads. It may seem strange to us but we used to walk around with a stuffed dummy in a wheelbarrow asking strangers for money before we set the effigy alight, so, in retrospect, not that strange at all.
