Watermen live in lakes and rivers all over the Czech Republic. Sometimes, they like to lure young girls and fishermen into their insidious webs under the water and than they keep their souls in a little cups. But this marionette is a good creature. He likes to sit on the river bank, smoke a pipe and when you come close to him, he will probably start telling you some funny stories and jokes.
His body is hand carved from wood, his head and hands are cast from a resin and carefully hand painted afterwards.
