I have recently learned that the Iconic Dragon seems to be as not a part of Japan culture/Stories as is in China. Of the few Marionettes i've constructed, two particularly sprang forth with a story in mind.. an Asian Woman and Asian Dragon. Though i'd prefer a doll sized Kimono made by an expert to be worn by the one, [ best effort did i use to sew one accordingly]. Her title is "Kasumi". The Dragon i had sewn some red sequin-ny fabric for its body. Also i realize that Dragon-puppets are not usually opperated like a marionette in Asia. That i plan to remedy by attaching thin bamboo rods to the underside of it's head ,tail and middle. I would like to ask any of you who's familiar with Asian fables that include a Dragon and one or two persons, please tell me. The Story of "the Dragon's Pearl" i have so far.
