Mystery Photo for Friday

Recommended Posts

After 10 years of this mystery, I finally got a break. A set of pictures of the Belgian Village, and 2 or 3 are some kind of puppet or marionette show. And one of them is this one:

If you look closely at the style- the guy playing the bass on the left has a face that's almost an exact copy of one of the figures in our mystery picture.

The only thing keeping me from 'calling' this one, is I'd like some kind of evidence that one of the buildings in the Belgian Village indeed had a puppet show. I'm looking through photos right now trying to find a sign or something.

hmmm... this sign says "dressed wax statuettes". Do you think these are wax? 10 years ago Hoodlock was skeptical that they were puppets. Maybe he's right?

In the "breakthrough" set I found, the picture I shared earlier this evening was #18.

The next picture in the sequence, #19, apparently is from the same animated musical figurine show. So we now have photos of 3 different performing sets of figurines.
