They say that every marionette artist is creating the marionettes according to his own appearance. It’s not any different with Jaroslav Slavík. Chubby nose, friendly eyes and the hands of the artist. They share all these attributes together. Mr. Slavík wasn’t a wood carved from everlasting. He started his career as an engine driver and continued as a miner. And that was his last profession. He got injured in the mine and couldn’t do any physically demanding job anymore, so he started carving marionettes, because it was his hobby even before. First marionette he made was sold immediately and it’s no wonder why. These pieces of art are very special. This artist is fascinated by mathematics. It’s a real skill to be able to balance the puppet, find the centre of gravity and attach the strings in a perfect way.
