Tholpavakoothu 01:

This is animage of a Tholpavakoothu puppet, a shadow puppetry of Kerala state in India.It is performed using leather puppets as the puppet is made out of deer's skin. The figures are drawn on skin, cut out and embellished with dots, lines and holes and are painted in different colours. Then, a white screen is illuminated with the help of oil lamps and shadows of these figures are projected on the screen. The themes of Tholpavakoothu are mainly taken from the episodes of Ramayana. It seems that this picture is depicting the character of Ram from the Ramayana.
