Kasparek
Kaspareks Art Rubber Stamps and Collage Elements    The folk puppet Kasparek dates back several centuries. He was part of the touring puppet theater in what is now the Czech Republic – a theater that had become great entertainment by the eighteenth century. A hundred years later these marionette plays had established themselves as a folk tradition. Popularity grew so much that by the 1900s whole families would be involved in the production of a play and the scripts were known by heart. Kasparek, one of the nearly two dozen folk figures in the puppet troupe, wore a coxcomb cap and a belt of jingle bells; he was a bit of a clown, a jester with a trickster's heart and was greatly loved by children.
