Marionettes (puppets operated by strings from above) have a long history dating back to the 1700's . The origin of puppets stems back to puppeteers from Holland, England, France, and Italy. Eventually groups from the Czech Republic assisted many puppeteers. By the end of the 18th Century, the Czech Republic became the leading artistry center for handmade puppets and marionettes.
