Leather Puppets & Lamp Shades

A Lampshade is a fixture that covers the light bulb on a lamp to diffuse the light it emits. Lampshades can be made out of a wide variety of materials like leather,paper, glass, fabric or stone. ... A lamp shade also serves to "shade" human eyes from the direct glare of the light bulbs used to illuminate the lamp.

Leather puppetry, also known as Tolu Bommalata, brings together the plastic arts of painting and leather craft with theatre that combines folklore with local story-telling and musical traditions.
