Huwei Puppets and Towel Cakes

Today we・re in Yunlin and this is a puppet factory. Cedric, what do you think about this one here.
Nice.
Yeah?
What do you think of mine?
Nice.
Yeah, yours is nice too.
Would you like to know how they・re done?
Yeah.
Let・s go.
Carving by hand, this second generation puppet craftsman checks in the mirror every once in a while to make sure the face of the puppet is symmetrical. Once the carving is done, the puppet is sanded down then painted.
You know, Cedric? I・m feeling a little bit insecure.
What do you mean?
I feel naked.
I have a nude feeling also.
Shall we put some clothes on then?
We should.
Can you show us how to dress them?
Everyone has a puppet head now, so you cut a hole here first, in the middle. Now there・s a hole. Next you put the head in.
45 degrees, 2 to 3 cm, then you stuff the head in?
Yes, put it in.
So we push the head down. And lift the skirt. I used to do that when I was a teenage boy.
Naughty boy.
Sometimes the head will end up crooked. Like this one.
My head is crooked.
I don・t want to be rude, but you・re kind of screwed.
Ok evil monkey king, put some clothes on, will you please?
Look in to my eyes, your beast in disguise!
Huwei, Yunlin is a manufacturing town and many factories like this one that makes towels welcome travelers.
In its heyday, there were about 200 towel factories in this town, but now only about 50 are left. In addition to seeing how towels are manufactured, you can also learn how to make this factory・s famously delicious looking towel cake.
With the folding of the the towels and the puppets it was pretty creative. What I loved the most, I have to say, is the puppet workshop because to see the artist carve the puppets and make life come out of wood, there was something magical about that.
