Medusa Puppet Concept Picture

This charming lady is a character design concept for a giant puppet to be used at the Welshampton Festival of Fire in October. The puppet will be mounted on a high bailer (a fork-lift truck with a telescopic arm) and raised about 30' above the ground. The controller for the eyes (iiluminated) and mouth (articulated) will be inside the head. The two arms will be controlled by long poles along the forearm and extending horizontally backwards from the elbow joint. She will have claw like hands with which she will pull herself along towards the (hopefully) terrified audience.

I hope to indulge my passion for terrifying small children to the max this year!
