These puppets are stunning works of art powered by people. Created by the French mechanical marionette street theatre company, Royal de Luxe, These larger than life characters took over Berlin streets in October to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
The Berlin Reunion – ‘The little giantess, the wall and the deep sea diver’, told the tale of 2 huge marionettes [15 metres high!] finally reunited after years of being separated by the wall.
“The storyline of the performance has the two separated by a wall, thrown up by “land and sea monsters”. The Big Giant has just returned from a long and difficult – but successful – expedition to destroy the wall, and now the two are walking the streets of Berlin, seeking each other after many years apart.”
To see the show in action have a look at the You Tube video. Magical.

I am sure everyone noticed the recent Sesame Street ‘Google Doodles’ in honour of their 40th birthday. But have you ever wondered how many of these doodles have been created since Google began? Most designs were created by Dennis Hwang (The official Google Doodle Design Artist and WebMaster). As of 2004, he had created 150.
Check out the Google official Doodle page, for the very extensive and varied collection. Many of the doodles are in honour of various National holidays that we may not otherwise know about had it not been for these curious doodles!
