French Puppets

By the end of my puppet animation class this spring I had three puppets that I loved dearly: Mr. Bobineau, Pierre Pignon and Loretta. They happened to all be French. Pierre Pignon is no longer with me as he was made of plasticine and would have either melted in the summer sun or eventually been poked by some sharp object. I realized that they are all from different classes; Mr. Bobineau is comfortably situated in the middle class (he is a math teacher and a toy maker), Pierre Pignon enjoys the glitter of high society (he is a fashion consultant at Chanel), and my dear Loretta is a country girl of low income (she grows flowers to sell in the city market and helps her mama make jam).
