Shadow Puppets

Color Leather Theater:

Was created in the Chaktomuk period between 1859-1904, with the support of Queen Sisowath Kosamak Neari Rath. A variety of different colors were used to paint the figures often decorated by phanhi tes (Angkor Stylized) ornaments on medium-sized cut leather. the pupets have no moving parts but are presented in one pane, similar to  the large shadow puppet theater. artists perform in front a large black screen and wear costumes relevant to the story.
