Bouwplaat voorstellende een trekpop
Flat puppet with hinged limbs that move as soon as someone pulls the string hanging from the puppet’s lower body. The movement is fairly uniform and basic; the arms and legs can only move sideways, simultaneously. The figure can be made of wood, but paper Jumping Jacks –made with copper-plate/lithography techniques and printed in the19th century- are more well-known. The sheets consist of parts of the figure's body (head, torso, arms, etc.), which could be cut out.
