"The string puppets of Gujarat are known as kathputhlis in the local lingo and the main centres where they are made are Jaipur and Jodhpur. The puppets are generally two feet in height having a wooden head with an enormous nose and large eyes. The rest of the body is made of colourful and bright pieces of cloth and stuffed rags which also allow for free movement. The puppets have no legs but are covered with a long pleated skirt.
