The talented puppeteer presented 3 works: Tumanyan's doll, who was welcoming the guests of the exhibition, a fairy tea party, presenting various characters of the fairy tale, gathered around the tea table, drinking tea made in samovar (self-boiler) and talking on different topics and the doll of heroine of Tumanyan's “Parvana” legend, holding the light in her hands and waiting for the brave heroes. This puppet is an exclusive doll, because she is crying and tears flow down from her eyes… waiting for the hero who will bring the undying fire of love…
The exhibition will continue till the end of August. Indeed, all puppets are good and kind, and all fairy tales end with the victory of good… Hurry up to admire this wonderful fairy exhibition.
