Commedia dell’arte Harlequin Arlecchino – Harlequin

commedia-dellarte-harlequin-arlecchino-marionette-a01-amcArlecchino is a shape shifting servant to Pantalone, Il Capitano or Il Dottore. A crafty low status character, Arlecchino tries to trick his patrons out of money, but usually fails. Arlecchino is very quick, acrobatic and limber. He’s not as intelligent as Brighella, but he is not as stupid as the Zannis.

This is a hand painted 25 cm collector’s marionette made of SculpWood epoxy putty.

The Harlequin has just arrived and reveals a unique charm and level of detail and is very different in style from our Czech marionettes. The controller includes 7 strings with independent rocking control over the head (tilting left and right). The mask, eye and face detail is exceptional and the joint movement is unencumbered.
The Harlequin is available in limited quantities only and is made in Canada by the Russian artist who designed him. He measures about 25cm from head to toe and we’ve imported him without the metal rod which gives him a more natural movement.
