Welcome to the first-ever comprehensive Chinese shadow pupptery site in English.  I’m so happy you’ve found it.  Please do look around and stay awhile.   If you like what you’ve learned here, please tell your friends.  If you have questions, comments or ideas feel free to contact me.  


If you've come back to the site, check out two new videos under the performance heading and our newly updated full-body and head DIY Chinese shadow puppet templates, here.

The shadows and I thank you for your interest!
