The puppets are dressed in traditional Chinese costumes including headgears. The strings used to manipulate the puppet are visible in the photograph. Henghua puppets are string puppets manipulated by a puppeteer whilst in a standing position. Henghua puppet performances are usually held in temples or during special occasions.
