Chinese Shadow Puppet Manipulation Technique

Shadow puppets move between a lamp and a canvass screen.
Manipulation is through rods attached to the neck and hands of the puppets. But the depth of play in relation to the light source is also important.

Getting closer to the light source, the shadow on the screen enlarges, by getting further away towards the screen, the traits become clearer and the colours in the hide are revealed.
